The first three were taken through a window - until the construction work at my school is finished there's no way to get this view from outside the building, the windows at this point don't open, and haven't been cleaned in several years, so there's some unavoidable blurriness. It's the Telecom Tower at various zooms
The fourth used the auto setting, no flash. Fifth and sixth were views of the building work from the lab window - this time I could open the window, and they're much clearer.
I'm feeling reasonably happy so far, haven't played with macro etc. properly yet, but I think it will be OK.
