I was a little self conscious on the sharpness of my camera and body after a shoot. Shooting on a 7D

Here are two shots, with two of my lenses. Just wanted to get people input on the sharpness...

Lens:EF70-200mm f/4L USM
Shot at 70 mm Exposure:Manual exposure, 1/250 sec, f/11, ISO 100
OOC:

24-105 picture seems sharper than the 70-200 picture.

They look pretty sharp. I agree the 24-105 looks sharper. I noticed you shot at 70mm with the 70-200mm which is probably the worst focal length to be at for image quality with that lens.

Really? I wasn't aware of that... I probably could have had a better image by using the 24-104 @ 70 huh?

By pretty sharp, are you saying they could be sharper? I was on spot focus and everything... I dont know what else to do :oops:

I guess you shot in RAW? Did you try to apply any sharpening in the edited photos?

Yes I did run some sharpening... But I'm curious about the sharpness OOC. I feel like I should be producing sharper pictures?

I agree. But I think the IS is probably helping here too. 1/250s isn't a handhelp proof ss for 70mm on 7D

Just thinking out loud, SS seems fast enough, IS is helping on the 24-105. The 70-200 should be sharper, Dont use spot focusing?. You may need to MA?

Well I went from full AF to spot after these pictures.

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=993760

I may have to try Manual focusing. I just dont know If i trust my sight as much through the viewfinder.

IMO try centerpoint, AV mode, 135mm, f8.0 with the 70-200 F4 and then post the results.

Regards, ;)

Thanks thanks... I would just think if I want to go any sharper, just do it in ps.
