Konica Minolta 5D telephoto uniformity comparison

  To measure lens vignetting and light fall-off we photographed a white target with a highly diffused custom filter. Here are the results for the bundled lenses at their longest focal lengths with the apertures wide open in Aperture Priority mode. The images were analysed with Imatest and the full areas presented here at a reduced resolution.

The image left was taken with the Konica Minolta Dynax 5D and the 18-70mm DT at 70mm f5.6. The light falls off to an average of 90.1% in the corners, which is similar to the Nikon and comfortably above the Canon and Pentax results.
