Guy, could you please add 100% crops of the relevant area, it's impossible to evaluate the sharpness from web resolution pics. Thx.
Hard to tell at Web resolution.
Nice shots. In particular the black and white.
The images are nice at this resolution, but are shot at F16 and F20 with a crop sensor. The MTF curve shows improvement just going from F5.6 to F8 as far as leveling off of the
roller coaster shaped curve. While there is some diffraction many other problems go away when you stop down. Things even out. Relative illumination levels out too.
It would also be interesting to see the black and white in RAW, Sky seems a bit on the noisy side for a straight ISO 100 with a DB.
Paul if your seriously interested in the 55LS lens I have plenty of images shot with the p40 and IQ 160 that PROVE the REAL reality how good this lens really is .......
My P65+ and IQ 180 shots with the 55mm LS seem to be tossed out as it was a test when I first tested the IQ 180 and a prototype 55LS.
Pity no full frame shots. What about the IQ160?
Pity you tossed them out. I always keep tests I like.
