Re: D7100 - Face close-ups test images, harsh lighting, ISO 1600-6400

Hi folks:

Thanks for your forthright remarks above..., please say whatever is on your mind, I want real feedback not baby food.

The reason I used this lens - the Nikon 70-300 VR - is because this is the only I own right now, and will be for a while yet, I suspect. I chose to buy ithis particular one because it's many glowing reviews say it is the best consumer-grade lens available.

I wouldn't for a moment think that this lens could even begin to compare with any quality pro lens, however, it is marketed as a good quality lens that can give reasonably good results under most circumstances so I'm try to determine whether that is actually the case.

So, despite the weakness of the lens, can anyone recommend an approach to post processing that would help mitigate the IQ issues seen in the RAW file?

Thanks again,

Rudy
