Oops - sometimes it is easy to confuse artifacts and reality.

i was real afraid i was wrong. again. but i will play with the amount of sharpening. i used 25 as the value just cause it's a nice number. i don't know, maybe 22 is better.

Sharpening is a very big and important subject.

A good place to explore the topic is over at the Luminous-Landscape website.

Start with this article and work your way through the 20-or-so other articles on the website.

Note that if you'd rather have punchier images straight from the camera, just press your Fn button and select a Picture Style (Standard, Landscape, Vivid, etc.); and you can adjust Contrast, Sharpening and Saturation for the selected Picture Style. Some Sony users prefer Vivid with Sharpening set to +2, Contrast at +1, and Saturation dialed back a notch to -1. Personally, I just use the defaults and PP later for more flexibility. But, you may want to experiment with the Picture Style settings and tune it more to your tastes.
