I keep thinking my new 7D isn't as sharp as my old 40D with the same lenses. Sent the 7D body and one lens back to Canon (the lens was sharp on the 40D). They said nothing wrong with the AF in the 7D but replaced third group elements in the lens - but the lens was fine on the 40D - go figure.
I'm new to posting photos so these have been resized in DPP to fit the 150kb limit and converted from RAW - no other processing. I never had to "sharpen" on the40D and I don't want to have to on the 7D.
Please ignore the composition, etc. - but I would appreciate comments on sharpness/soft focus. The first image is from the 40D the second from the 7D - same lens.
