My take on this.

After reading your other posts I see that this is a RAW conversion. I don't do a lot of RAW shooting but from what I have done and seen from others it seems your conversion and processing is poorly done compared to other examples that have been posted.

That is an extreme crop and considering how much a crop of such magnitude from a 24mp sensor is magnified you must expect more flaws to be revealed than you would get from a sensor of less resolution.

The bird in the image is very soft so I expect the image may be a bit out of focus, a bit of camera shake or a faulty lens.


It looks a bit soft to me as well, but at 1/3000 of a second, I think we can rule out subject movement or camera shake. Looking at the barbed wire, I think the focus is on as well.

Possibly a bad copy of the lens?
