Here is a shot into the living room, followed by the same shot at 21x zoom. The camera was in fully auto mode, handheld. Notice that the second image appears to be quite stable, no doubt thanks to the image stabilizer at work.
F/6.3, 1/30s, ISO 240
F/6.9, 1/45s, ISO 400
The bottom two are panoramic shots of the living room. Camera was set in Panorama mode. The images appear as they are straight out of the camera. Despite very brightly lit windows, the exposure appears to be spot on.
F/4, 1/125s, ISO 320
F/4, 1/180s, ISO 320
