Questionable sharpness ? - follow up
Sep 16, 2012

Hi to everyone,

Since the release of the a99, and looking through the samples available in their full resolution (6000 x 4000), I have not been impressed with the sample sharpness. As a matter of fact, I thought that most samples were pretty dreadful in terms of sharpness.

I decided sharing 3 shots taken with the a900 + Sony Zeiss 24-70 (at different settings). Those shots should be available today for download (full resolution samples + EXIF) following those 3 links (one link per sample).

No additional sharpness filters were applied.

Test shot 1

Test shot 2

Test shot 3

All 3 shots should look significantly sharper than any a99 samples I have seen thus far (except maybe for one shot I recall in the Spanish website)

Comments are obviously welcome to favor the discussion.
