X_tan,

Great work. My 28-300 is gathering dust as I try to perfect my motocross
photography using my 24 1.4 mkII, 300f/2.8 and 70-200 2.8 mkII. But,
this thread and all the great photos always gets me motivated. Well done
everyone!

Thanks Tony!

I never thought 28-300mm of any brand, can take a sharp image.
Wonder how much of sharpness that is in excellent range is actually porduct of lens and how much pp.

Default PP in LR:
Lens correction
40 on the top sharpening slider (default is 25)
50 on unsharp mask
Set black and white point
Adjust shadows and highlights if needed

Sometimes:
Grad filter
Selective dodge and burn
10 or 20 clarity
10 noise reduction

Rarely:
10 or 20 vibrance
On high ISO selective heavier noise reduction on the out of focus areas

^My default LR setting for all my shots including all L prime lenses:
Lens correction Most time
Sharpen 25 (only very few to 30)
Gradual filter for sky sometime.
Clarity sometime.
Noise reduction very few.

Many many thanks guys!

After owning so many Canon best L prime lenses, I still can't thing that any of them can replace this 28-300L.
