Enjoyed the review as this lens is definately on my mind for a future purchase. One (well two) questions i do have to are regarding the photos posted with the review. In todays modern post processing era, how much post processing has been done to the photos to juice them up ? and are the originals available if there has been post processing ?
Thanks, keep up the great work.
Digital is different from film.
Processing of the image pulled from the sensor is always required. When using jpeg, the processing to add noise reduction, sharpness, contrast, color balance, etc are done in camera according to the settings.
Same thing happens with raw, only its done by your computer according to your software settings. You have more control over it that way, but its still the same thing going on as in the camera processing.
Processing tricks like HDR, splicing, removal of unwanted items in the image, might be a example of extra post processing, but not noise reduction, sharpness, etc, but they are often done in camera by some manufacturers as well.
What does post processing mean to you??
