I stepped up from a 30d,and always when viewing raw images in DPP,when I would click on 100%,it would be blurred for a few seconds,then res in pretty sharp.
With the 50D,when doing the same thing,it takes longer to res in,of course,but it lacks the sharpness of the 30d's image when viewed at 100%.
I'm not imagining it. When I view an sraw1 [similar size of a 30d file] at 100%,it seems to have the sharpness of the 30d image when it snaps in to res. Same goes for a sraw2 file.
Why would the 15mp file not be as sharp when viewed at 100% as the smaller ones,or the 30d's?
This is frustrating because part of my upgrade was to be able to crop deeper. If the sharpness isn't there,what's the point???
BTW,when viewing a full size raw at 50% in DPP,it looks fabulous-way better than the 30d.
My lenses are 70-200 2.8IS,17-40F4L,300mm 2.8IS-so I know my lenses are up to snuff.
I can't return the camera because I need the high ISO perf. for BB games indoors,but I would appreciate it if Bob or anyone else could explain this to me.
