Impressive as the lens’s magnification is, the Lumiz LZ40’s images are going to be limted by the rather more ordinary sensor. It has a 20-megapixel 1/2.33-inch sensor. That’s a few megapixels up from the 16-megapixel sensor of the previous LZ30, but as the sensor is the same size, we don’t expect dramatically improved image quality.
The LZ30 was criticised for its fairly mediocre image quality, though, so we do hope so see some improvement when we get our unit in to review. There’s certainly potential for this, as both the lens and sensor were at fault in the LZ30.
