    Exclamation (E-5) - does this look oversharpened to you?

    Here's a full size image I took today (I was lucky to have an opportunity to test E-5 out with SHG lenses).
    This shot was taken with E-5 and 14-35, processed in ACR as E-30 file, sharpness around 40, radius .9 or .8
    Auto contrast, and that's it.



    Coming from a E-3, E-5 seems really sharp and I'm unsure how to process it.

    The details seem really amazing.
    Cheers,
    Marin

    Marin,

    It does not look over sharpened to me. Having said that, I find correctly sharpening for the web very difficult. It is much easier for me to sharpen for prints.

    Doesn't look over processed if that's what yo mean. Its sharp, but not over sharp.

    The full size, (after it downloaded and adjusted itself to fit my screen) looks good for sharpness. After saving the file, and re-opening it to view chunks @ 1:1, it needs more sharpening before printing.

    Looks fine to me too.

    I find that most of my E-5 raw exposures require very little other than Lightroom/Camera Raw's defaults on the sharpening adjustment, if properly focused in the first place.

    Yea, the detail seems really incredible (look for the trees), it's so crisp and detailed.

    This was done with 14-35, and I haven't tried that lens on my E-3 before, but I did use 50mm macro which is one of the sharpest lens on E-system and I could never get this detailed foliage.

    It does look oversharpened on my monitors, sort of resembling motion blur for which I try to over compensate sometimes.. was it windy here, perhaps?

    I would expect to see over-sharpening artifacts on the communication tower on the horizon but it looks clean. If you told me this was FF, I would believe you.
