Are a) my eyes going bad or b) no pictures posted sharp or c) is there something happening between pictures being posted here and their getting viewed by me that makes everything look unsharp? I swear that if I were to judge by pictures posted in this forum I would never have bought an m4/3.

One example: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3295647

Nice pictures, none look sharp.

Looks to me as though the poster of those images has posted with a fair amount of jpg compression. Look at the file sizes.

But the issues about dpr's new image handling also contributes to this problem.

I use a G1 and an OM-D and my prints at 20x16 inches have been mistaken for a full frame camera because of the resolved detail. Four thirds certainly doesn't lack sharpness in the right hands.
