...would someone please indulge, by explaining the difference betwixt these two? I mean, what would be a prime situation when one would opt for using the USM as opposed to the straight 'sharpening' feature?

Advanced thanks - and Blessings,

Nate

Allow me to clarify myself a little better with the following: if an individual wishes to 'sharpen' a photo, why would he (or she) wnat to choose anything with an unsharpening element to it? By virtue of that prefix, it would seem to mean 'undo' - to my way of thinking. I am not toying around here, I really am confused about this. Maybe I should type that query into the Google search box, and see what comes up.
