Hello

I bought an a99, I used the sigma 50 1.4 that has good reviews for sharpness, I shot in 1600 ISO, which is OK for the a99, I shot in JPEG and not in RAW, ok, I know, but still... why is this photo not that sharp ?

Below is a quick edit of your file - just to see what's in there. I'm the "RAW" type, so whatever was lost in creating the JPEG in-camera is irretrievable. Still, the camera often doesn't do the job it could (it makes sense; you've got a lot more computing power in your home computer). This is just an idea of one of the possible flavors.

As a side note, in earlier days of KM shooting (they had a much nicer JPEG engine than what Sony's using, IMO) the JPEG shooters would play with backing off on the in-camera sharpening and/or contrast; you'll have more potential for detail in PP, that way.
