Sigma 18-125 not too bad. Impressive texture!

I was post-processing some images this evening and was really impressed by this image. Taken with a widely criticised kit lens I couldn't go past the texture in the casting of the supercharger.

K10D + Sigma 18-125, 1/640, f4.5, -0.3EV, ISO 100, 34mm.

RAW DNG, opened in Photoshop CS2, WB adjusted, Unsharp Mask applied - 0.3pix 150%, contrast adjustment, saved for web.

Full image.

100% crop.

I don't know. The crop looks like you could just zoom in again, doesn't it.
