    This is the same tree from yesterday, taken with three different small sensor cameras. All jpgs taken are various camera metering and autofocus settings.

    So, the same question: which appears sharpest?

    Camera A:



    Camera B:



    Camera C:


    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Cheers, Jock

    To my weak eyes, I'd say Camera A.

    Camera A for me mostly because the colour seems more natural especially the 2nd pic

    I can't tell anything without full size pics.

    At these magnifications A seems sharpest, but that is mostly because of the increased contrast. When I was printing professionally I'd up the contrast on client's pictures if they were soft to increase "apparent" sharpness.

    So...at the sizes given we can't really pixel peep, and they appear to be roughly similar except in contrast.
