The Z5fd has one metering mode: evaluative. That means it can't handle backlit shots like this properly, resulting in underexposed subjects. The manual instructs you to use fill flash for situations like this, but a snapshot camera should be smart enough to meter this scene correctly.

The Z5fd's lens is pretty good, with solid edge-to-edge focus. And the camera seems to sharpen just enough without going overboard.

Where did the shadows come from in this photo? They weren't there in reality, though there were some less-bright areas. Sometimes you get poor exposures like this when the image processor doesn't do sufficient correction to bring out the midtones.
