My first L lens was the 70-200 2.8 II, and it remains my most used lens.

Interesting. One known source says 100% no way and the other known source says 100% yes in a big way.
My understanding is that if you have a RAW file and the sharpening is set to ZERO you get the best image quality because you have not changed the original raw data and that should be exactly the same sharpness that the sensor reads through the lens.
Then if you add any sharpening at all you change the original sharpness by sharpening it more than was originally captured and thus you lose image quality.
Whenever i edit photos i immediately notice it even if the sharpness setting is set to 1 and quickly change it to zero. I do shoot with a 1DX and mostly with 85mm 1.2L II & TS-E24mm 3.5 L II That are both very sharp lenses and don't need to be sharper.
So why do most people sharpen their photos??? Most editing software has the default settings at a whole lot of sharpening and the image quality just looks awful to me if sharpening is used.
Then there is software made specifically for sharpening.. Who needs it so much?? Does it only exist to make bad lenses look sharp?
A face that tell lots of stories!

I just got my new canon 6d and I simply love it. Before, I had the canon XSi. One thing that I noticed is that when I look in the 6d viewfinder, it is very big. It nearly impossible to see it all. With the XSI, the visible square was smaller and I could easily see the image I was going to take. But with the 6d, I cant see the edges all at once. I have to move my head a bit from left t right to see it all. And if I waer my glasses, its even worst since my eyes are a bit farther.
Is is due to the full frame sensor? Anyone else noticed this ?
