16-85 lacks sharpness

also are you using iphoto?

I'm guessing that you are and perhaps shooting in raw?

The default processing for raw files in iphoto sucks. Sharpness is set to none (try .8 to start) and it seems to have problems with shadow detail.

Aperture is much better. I would not use iphoto for anything but point and shoot jpegs and to post them on mobile me.

My 16-85 is quite sharp. The only thing that bugs me is the slight bit of distortion at 16 mm
