Did you "Look" at the area bounded by the four red arrows at 100%?

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.

Anytime you create sharpening halos (there are plenty of them in the above image) you have opersharpened. The percentage of USM and radius is totally immaterial.

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.

Again, did you actually "look" at the area bounded by the four red arrows at 100%?

Best regards,

Lin
