Re: Pentax-DA 560mm F5.6 ED AW

I haven't looked through everything yet, but I did look at the cactus shots that are part of the sharpness section. What I saw with the f/5.6 image was that it was slightly over-exposed compared to the f/8 shot and so there is some loss of color contrast in the cactus at f/5.6. If I had shot that image, I would have lowered the exposure somewhat during raw conversion and then finished with high pixel radius USM (radius=50, amount=12, threshold=0). Doing only USM to the jpeg gets it very close to the f/8 image.
