Introduction | Canon PowerShot G16 Lens performance | Canon PowerShot G16 Lens versus competition | Conclusion

From our previous tests, we’ve already seen the sensor performance of the PowerShot G16 is on par with rivals, but that’s only a part of the imaging chain. Often it's the case that fast zooms like this are compromised in some way. And, while sharpness could be improved, the lens is consistent performer throughout the zoom range. At $549 the Canon PowerShot G16 is not inexpensive but it has a good balance of performance and value when compared to rival offerings.
