Did quite a bit of testing of 20mp, 10mp and 5mp resolution settings.

Surprisingly I found the 5mp size has better contrast and sharpness.
Interestingly could see no improvement when shooting at 10mp.

I tried down sampling, with Photoshop, 20mp files to 5mp, but the results are not as good.

I can only conclude, that Sony is down sampling before jpeg compression, and this is what makes the difference.

This image below, shot at 5mp, shows excellent detail and contrast.

Anybody else here using the 5mp setting and coming to the same conclusion?
