Is it me, or do these images just not seem that sharp. I looked at the 'large' files, which don't seem that big, and there are no sharp lines or edges. I'm sure the camera can do better quality, at least I hope so! Brandon, have you obtained satisfactory sharp images which you feel justifies the cost of the camera?
I think they are without sharpening. Litle post-production and they look more eye-candy: http://min.us/llD8L6 http://min.us/llDATE
Brandon -- I have not touched the JPEGS at all. Yes I can sharpen them and re-post - but I've been true to previous posts and not adjusted the files. The focus point is on the knot in foreground. That is what is sharp due to the depth of field. The camera has proven to be incredibly sharp and I trust the results for production units will be the same when the press tests them and reports online next month.
Thanks for sharing. I have to test the sharpness myself--is there a way I can borrow the X100 for an hour or so? ;-) I promise I'll give it back!!!
Sharpness side, the colors are really impressive. These images feel like an incredibly accurate rendering of the scene. Where you want to go from there in post is up to you...
