Fujifilm Finepix S9500 zoom macro comparison

Fujifilm Finepix S9500 zoom macro test   To measure macro performance we photographed a custom chart using the bundled lenses at a distance and focal length which delivered the maximum possible reproduction. The dark lines are 10mm apart.

The image left was taken with the Fujifilm S9500 at 6.2mm f8 (equivalent to 28mm). The S9500 is capable of focusing very close, and at a distance of just 2.1cm, captured an area of 50x38mm. With the lens set at wide angle, there’s inevitably some barrel distortion, but it’s still the maximum reproduction of this group.
