They could have a sharper lens than you. They could edit it an run it through an AI sharpening program.

r1ch wrote: In JPG, Canon takes the raw data off the sensor and it applies a picture style which is color, saturation, contrast, noise reduction and sharpness. The jpg image looks good because Canon has baked it. But if you shoot raw, you must do all these edits or else the image will not look good, you need to apply sharpening and noise reduction or you can get soft images.

Hand held without a fast enough shutter speed can cause soft images.
Automatic modes can be set to auto ISO. ISO set at 100 99.9% of the time.
Are you using a preset for sharpening? On the camera? I have it on manual.
What image editor are you using? Cyberlink Photo Director
In most editors when you go to export the image after editing and or size reduction, it will ask you if you want to sharpen the image and will have presets like the ones below.
Sharpen for Matte paper High/medium/ low
Sharpen for Gloss paper High/ Medium/low
Sharpen for screen High/ medium/Low
There is a check box for 'sharpen after resizing'. Never took notice of it tbh. I seldom resize. Is that wrong?
Have you tried screen? Not not sure what you mean
There are other reasons for low sharpness. I can because of AF not being
celebrated, problem lens but those issues are a lot less likely.

r1ch wrote: Hi Sebastian, so first, I noticed that this lens has image stabilization. You may already do this but make SURE it is turned off when you are using a tripod. Also if you have any filters like circular polarizer or lens protector (UV Filter) take them off.
r1ch wrote: Second. I cannot stress enough how important exposure is. I have only looked at your first
image because that is all the time for now perhaps tonight I will get to
the second one.
The first image is overexposed. If you are going to use manual mode, You must check the histogram in the back of your
camera EVERYTIME you take a picture and make sure you are not over
