Has there been any definitive testing - using both cameras with the same lens, same subject, same settings - to see if the Mark III is actually softer?
I shot a number of portrait/face shots with the Mark III using spot focus. Using ACR and Photoshop PS5, with the same post processing settings that I usually use for the Mark II, I felt that the images were a bit soft. When I turned the sharpening plugin in Photoshop up to a higher level, I thought that the Mark III images looked better, even though that is usually too much sharpening for my Mark II images. My lens was not AF microadjusted for the Mark III (this lens was dead on with the Mark II), so that is one possible reason.
Can someone point me in the direction of any of the Mark III reviews where they compare the sharpness of the same RAW images shot with each different camera?
