Here’s an excellent set of nine Pentax W60 samples presented in a Japanese review.

My favorites from the review are as follows (click the thumbnail for the full-sized image):

  1. The amount of sharp detail captured is excellent in this ISO 50 photo of a flower:

  2. This is a photo of the exterior of an airplane cockpit photographed with the lens on the W60 at full telephoto zoom (or, 140mm in 35m terms).:

    The level of detail is pretty good.

  3. The ISO 200 cat photo is a nice example of a wide-angle perspective of a subject at close range, taken with the lens at 28mm:

    There’s visible noise, especially in the darker areas of the photo, but the chroma noise cleans up pretty well in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
    The photo of the house by the stream is also another good example of how useful the 28mm focal length is:

    I have to say that there’s almost no trace of purple fringing around the outline of the leaves against the sky — this is indeed good performance by the W60.

  4. Two ISO 400 photos show how well the W60 controls noise in images. To me, the noise structure looks more than acceptable, with no undue amount of detail smearing.
    This is an image of a lamp:
