7D: Is this sharp? (Large file warning)

Found this on the IR site. Per IR, RAW with sharpness in camera set to zero and NR turned off, converted with DPP, USM in Photoshop with strength = 80, radius = 0.3.

Here's the quote from IR:

As of this writing, we haven't seen results from the Canon 7D's RAW files processed through a good third-party converter, but Canon's own DPP does an excellent job of conversion to JPEGs. We found the best results at low ISOs with noise reduction turned off, sharpening set to zero, and then using unsharp masking after the fact in Photoshop, with a radius of 0.3 pixels and strength of 80%. The results were pretty phenomenal. (Here's a link to a sample of our Still Life target, shot at ISO 100 and processed with that formula. It's a 16.1 MB JPEG, so be patient with the download.)
