Brenda, I think it is sharp enough. If you shoot RAW, you have to get used to applying sharpening.

The Internet sized photos are difficult to interpret.

Is this sufficiently sharp?

Brings up a good question...for those of you who shoot RAW, are you generally applying some sort of sharpening on all shots? Do you have a general rule of thumb that you follow or just what looks good to you?

Gerry..looks sufficient to me.

the in camera firmware who converts the raw files to jpeg applies anything you set in picture style. if you shoot raw, you will be the one to do that including sharpening.

make sure you dont oversharpen the image though.

Brenda, I am a sharpness junkie. I apply as much as the photo will bear. Normally a radius of 1.

To push the previous photo as much as it gets

I sharpen during conversion in DPP using the default at a strength of 3. I then, usually, sharpen in CS5 at a radius of 1.0

PS - you forgot to update your sig ;)

Been a minute since I've been on, so thought I'd stop by and say hi. Been out and about quite a bit lately and haven't been checking on here that much, but here's some contribution from me from the last few days. Went to Jellystone and had these bears coming right at us until they turned and started fighting about 50 yards from us. First bear was about 20ft. away with my 70-200, but wouldn't lift his head over the grass to get a good pic.

I use high pass but i'm masking it only to the area i wanted to sharpened. Radius depends on the size of the picture. If i feel the sharpening is too much. I dial down the opacity.

I used to overdone sharpening a lot but one time questionmarc(if you remember him) told me that too sharp is also distracting, i'm being careful since. I agree with him.

Also got my first moose of the year in Utah and first aurora here too. Pic that is red was kind of irritating since I and a few other friends couldn't figure out why all our pics kept coming out red and purple, checked later and found out we were in the aurora zone that night. Like I said, been traveling a lot and got to shoot this lizard in Moab and also got some milky way shots in while camping.

X2! Those are great!


Str0...We're gonna need pics of that F-2 bag. I've looked at it off and on for over a year and just haven't been able to pull the trigger. I keep most of my cameras/lenses in a Pelican case now...But I need a bag that'll carry 3 lenses and two bodies along with the little crap that goes with...THink that F-2 will hold all that comfortably?

Master, I recently bought a used Domke F-2 and while it's great, it isn't quite big enough for my gripped 60D and the lenses in my signature. The grip is the biggest problem. I still use it for a light day trip where I don't need to bring everything. I pretty much have to leave the 15-85 attached because it's too tight with the added length of my other two lenses.

I added a Domke F-1X and it's just as advertised: a little bit bigger bag. Jon has been suggesting the 720-230 insert so I bought one of those too and replaced the one that comes with the bag. This way, I can put my lenses in the insert and have half of the bag available along with an open section at the end of the bag. The gripped body fits right in this open section and I have enough room that it doesn't make a difference which lens I have attached... it fits it the parallel space in front of the 720-230.
