Re: C1 Pro - be alert
Straight out of the camera, ALL digital images, regardless of the
quality of the lenses look "Pretty Damn Soft!" Sharpening is
required. Period. I don't know about Canon's DPP software, but I do
believe RAW Shooter applies a bit of sharpening by default ... been a
while since I used it, but I think you have to set it to what would
seem like softening (on the settings anyhow) to really turn sharpening
C1 Pro is probably just REALLY giving you an unsharpened image.
Assuming, of course, that you don't have a focus problem, etc etc
which I assume you don't. :)
Lot's of RAW processors do a bit of sharpening by default so that
folks don't react as you did. :)

like a harsh expression, we must consider that we spend thousands of
dollars in top quality lenses. Ruining their excellence with a faulty
software is a critical thing.
