No, that's not what I want to see

Look at 100% at the area bounded by the four red arrows. Is this what you would prefer to see with the Quattro? If so, it took me exactly 12 seconds to get this.

You have way oversharpened the original. There is no need to create sharpening halos to get the microcontrast as I have it in the square area...

Best regards,

Also: applying a USM of 100% and radius 1 to such a high-pixel JPG is in no way oversharpening but rather perfectly reasonable in most circumstances - keep in mind that DPR for instance applies a USM of 100% and a radius of 0,6 with threshold 0 to all RAW comparisons.

I agree though that in this case (DP2 Quattro) something strange is going on and the JPGs do not take 'kindly' to normal USM.

I don't see any improvements in my image, regardless of the level of sharpening (or non-sharpening) in SPP and playing around with different USM settings, which would come near to what I'm used to from my DP2 Merrill.
