Re: are you sure?

Yes I am sure. F16 my @#$. In case you haven't noticed, I use the camera daily and I can tell you clarity is NOT going to come across the frame at that low an aperture on this camera. I don't know whether the individual in question was shooting in fine mode and if not that may contribute to the problem. Kim, with all due respect, you REALLY need to use the camera for longer than 30 minutes and with something other than an axe to grind. You have NO CLUE as to the idiosyncrasies of the camera. I know you are going to call me an idiot or whatever, but I promise you, I have used this camera and have found the issues that I have discussed. Otherwise I wouldn't bring them up. I can guarantee you anyone who uses this camera on a daily basis knows more about this than you. All you have is your book knowledge. Unfortunately real life rarely is covered in books.

Actually the problem is so simple it is amazing. the first one is not
too bad but the aperture is REALLY low at 4. That is not for a photo
with this much stuff all around. If I wanted clarity I would bump the
ISO up to the 7 range.

Shooting at F4 on this camera is like shooting at F16 on a FF cam.
That's pretty much going to make everything pretty sharp. It's not
like he's close to anything, it's all fairly far away.

The second photo has two problems. First is the same low aperture
issue. The 3 range is definitely too low for this photo. Couple that
with the barrel distortion at maximum wide angle and you have what
looks like poor focus.

The lense looks a little blurry at the edges in both photos. I think
he's got one of those S100fs cams with poor clarity. Plus, he's got
a lot of shadows, and he's seeing some fairly typical NR artifacts at
the edges.
