    Hello Jack,

    Is this a photograph of a print? TBH it doesn't look all that sharp, hence the question. Or perhaps it is the interpolation for the screen??

    Thanks for posting.

    Hi David,

    Nope, you're spot on :eek: But, I noticed that Photobucket downsized the picture and, obviously, didn't assign any kind (minimal) sharpening :rolleyes:. But, amazingly, it is quite sharp :) and I did the same shot with the Q and the 06 lens and, sharpness wise, they were (almost) identical but, exposure wise, there was a difference. If you would like to view 'em both, as someone on DPR wanted to, if you PM me your email and I can send both the original files for your perusal :)

    Cheers,

    Jack ............. and maybe it was screen interpolation ... but I don't really know what that means :eek:

    I just meant that the image may have been downsized pixel wise to show on the web. This can sometimes damage the sharpness....

    I will PM my Email address for you, no problem.

    Thanks.

    Hi David,

    Ah, I like when I can blame things, other than myself, for iffy looking (sharp or lack thereof) pics ;). I printed them both and they both looked, as a mate of mine would say, "not too shabby" :)

    So, PM away and I'll send you the big(ish) files :D

    Cheers,

    Jack
