You have to apply more sharpening on the 1D2 image files.

Wait, you cannot see the images posted above correctly?

I was talking about the camera setting.... the color matrix of Adobe RGB (in camera) was producing better images for me.... i convert them to jpeg in lightroom...

No, I can see it fine, I just thought you meant that you uploaded them in Adobe RGB

Oh okay...

The Portrait Matix was producing terrible skin tones...while the Adobe RRGB was producing amazing color tones...

I have not tested the other settings yet.. anyone recommends a Color Matrix setting for portraits?

David,
I'm not sure what you are asking ? Are you talking about the picture style in DPP ?

No, on the 1D MKII, hit Menu:

you have
1. Custom White Balance
2. Jpeg Quality
3. Parameters
4. Color Matrix (this is what i'm talking about)

Question for you guys, what's the biggest print you're comfortable to make with an uncropped shot from the 1D II/N sensor?

In my experience, the 1D2's LCD can't be used to judge brightness at all. The image is really only useful for judging composition, and maybe focus. For exposure, the histogram and highlight warnings should be just about all you need anyway.

I can't tell focus personally. But its not a big deal, the quality of the images and other features for a 750 dollar camera sure make up for it.
