It's actually very simple. You just use the clone stamp. You normally only notice the dust if it's in an homogenous area of the photo like the sky or a wall, if there's a lot of detail the dust is less visible. Also when you have dust spots you get to know where they occur so you look in the same places. It only takes a few seconds to fix, but it is a bit of a pain.

On the other hand working with film wasn't exactly free of dust problems either.

For sharpening you simply must look at Photokit sharpener, unless of course you're doing your sharpening in-camera. But if you're shooting RAW then this plug-in is a must:

Take a look at my digital imaging website:
http://home.surewest.net/frcn/Camera.html
There are a number iof lessons for new users there. One, "Making Old Images Look New Again" has a lesson in it on using the clone tool. Might be what you are looking for.

Here is a site of mine, and all of the images in the"2005" and "Jackson, MS"section were taken with the 28-135mm IS. I really like the lens. The only problem i have (which is not big) is that i shoot alot of buildings and its not wide enough. Of course thats not what the lens is for. As you said it is a great walk around!
