also try a cheap prime lens like the 50m 1.8, nicer bokeh effect, only the highlights will be pentagon shape then natural round shape because its only 5 bladed.
also if you underexpose, the shadow areas will look noisy, bring your dog out these days, the sun is a killer!

Saw your wedding series....not bad...composition and all.....but like what you mentioned...the sharpness isnt really there.....are the original files like that also....cause it looks like JPG compression to me....

Jpeg compression is one slight reason why there is slight degrade in quality btn my original and the one posted in the net. But the diff is not that great.
Anyway, for the benefit of everyone and myself, i will go and do some testing as soon as i can and hopefully come out with an answer and post it here.
