D80 + Sigma 17-70mm = sharp!

Just thought I'd share this shot I recently took with my D80 using the Sigma 17-70mm... I'm just amazed at the sharpness of the berry I was targeting, even at 100%. I tweaked the color in Aperture a bit but did no PP on sharpness, and the D80 is set at the default setting. Check out the image:

...and an 100% crop of the berry I was focused on:

If you ask me, that's a pretty dang sharp edge for a 10 MP image at default sharpening levels!

EXIF info for the curious is at http://www.flickr.com/photo_exif.gne?id=385718382

Next I hope to either pick up an SB600 flash or the 50mm 1.8 lens.... but I love my Sigma.
