I have only had the camera for about a week, but am troubled by the "soft" look of the pictures straight out of the camera. I am shooting all RAW pics and have tried all the different combos from full Auto to full Manual. Don't get me wrong - I am no professional but from what I have read and seen for myself there is a real issue here. And this is not from pixel peeping either.
I have read a lot of reveiews and peoples opinions about this issue. I have tried to convince myself that I would be happy with the results after PP - but somehow this seemed odd to have to rely on PP for a decent picture with this level of Camera?
My big hangup with this is that I have spent $3000 for a camera and lens and I can't get a sharp picture straight out of the camera? I have to do PP to improve the image. I am quite disappointed as I do truly love the features of this camera and wish I was over the moon with it. It sucks though when your wife is looking over your shoulder and commenting that they dont seem to be very sharp even relative to a P&S.
I bought it for the AF / Movie and sports capability, but whats the point if the images are disappointing straight out of the camera?
And I crazy to expect a $3000 camera/lens combo to be able to give me a razor sharp image as shot? What am I missing.
I know a lot of you will say that these tack sharp results can be had with a lot of PP but I want a high quality pic right out of the camera and then do PP if I decide I want to - NOT BECAUSE I HAVE TOO.
I can still return this camera and get another. At this point I am willing to go another brand to get what I want. I am reluctant to get the 5Dmk2 as it lacks the quality AF and sports shooting of the 7D.
Is there a camera/lens combo for $3000 out there that will satisfy me?
Please forgive my ramblings and help as this is really bumming me out.
