Performance 5D2 and 24-105mm/4.5 L
11 months ago

Hello, I am having doubts on sharpness of this comibination. Both were bought from previous owners: the 5D2 in 4-2012 and the lens some 5 years ago and has been put to good use on a 50D and a 7D. In crispyness I don't see much improvement between 50D and 5D2.

I use Photoshop CS5 to reduce the pics for use on my website and seem to have to use sharpening more than other previous cameras.

I don't have similar images to put them in comparison, that's the thing. And it works excellent in my streetphotography at almost complete darkness, e.g.

The range of lens and camera performance in general is for me a dream come true, but there seems a softness in the images when resizing them down to 844 - 1080px range.

I use CS5 (smart sharpening) and shoot mostly JPEG, not RAW.

Perhaps it has to do with the subject: crumbling temples in Cambodia, sandstone...

Anyone having the same feelings?

Thanks
