I am never 100% happy with the sharpness of my images SOOC. I'm sure this is a composite of the user and the lens as I only have beginner lenses and I am a beginner myself.

I am wondering if anyone uses the in camera sharpness adjustment on a regular basis? How does this compare to just sharpening in post processing with either a JPEG or RAW image? I am going to do my own testing of each sharpmness adjutment on each of my lenses but thought some of you may have some insight/experience as well.

I am not sure what your problem is, but I find the K10D quite sharp.

As my example, shooting JPEGs with normal sharpness, see below for a link to an image using a sigma APO 70-200 EX F2.8 and 2x Sigma TC.

note that this is a full frame exposure (no crop) only resized to post
