don't you find that the pictures are lacking in contrast, resolving power and kinda underexposed?

doesnt seem very sharp leh...

anyway iread u gotta put sharpening to +2 to compare with 10D +0...

1/80s still blurry, doubt its handshake leh... 1/30 perhaps. but 1/80 and the 1/60 shd be quite sharp even if handheld.....
unless... focus **** up?

hmm.. was thinking of either E1 or 10D....

still not very sure....

Not really lacking in contrast. Higher ISOs will see less details. Maybe underexposed is my skill... :embrass:

although no enhancement done in PS, but when u resize and resave your images, the image already degrade, especially using a .jpeg format.

lacking in details results from poor or insufficient lighting. Good quality len also play an important part.

The E1 captured skin tones (see 1st pic) very naturally with saturation mode set to skin tones.

Even at ISO 800, there is relatively unnoticeable noise (see pic 3).

All noise filters are off. WB - 4500K, Aperture priority and shot full open aperture at f3.5 at tele end (f=108mm). Of course if shoot st f5.6-f11, the sharpness would even be better.

This 14-54 f2.8-3.5 is a good lens in my opinion! :thumbsup:

Depends on what you compare with. IMO and from test shots I have taken with 70 - 200 f2.8 Sigma and 70 - 200 f4L at AP using 10D. Skin tone, exposure, sharpness are better.
