There is no dispute, the p850 is not the sharpest puppy on the block. I have found that shooting in RAW does indeed provide a sharper photo, perhaps it is the JPG algo... thats causing it vs the lens or sensor. I did shoot a fairly good wedding with the p850 a few weeks back and did indeed get some great shots. Used the Nikon sb26 strobe for light. I shot a few rolls with my Nikon N90s just in case. But out the digital shots are all in the customers album and they love it. Of course photoshop does help a bit. But that goes for film as well. The shots at the link I posted are all in JPG and none were minipulated by the way. The interesting one is the "rock" Which really was shot out of the back window of my car at around 70mph at close to the full focal length. Guess it was a lucky shot

greygeek-

Take a look at this photo, please. This was the type of sharpness I was looking for in my P-850 photos.

I can get the same results. I would show you my portrait but I'm much to old.

Here is one picked radomly from the wedding originals. No retouching or minipulation whatsoever. But I did have to increase the jpg file compression to 45% to get it smaller than the 250k limit for this forum. I normally store .jpg's at no more than 10% compression. You can check out the EXIF data.
