Description: All three test images were taken with a Sigma Zoom 1:3.5-5.6 in P mode
No.1 seemd the sharpest at 100% and I thought this unusual until I viewed each test shot at 200% It was then that I saw the digital artifacts. Test image 3 is the sharpest as it should be as it was taken with the highest quality.
Test image No.2 was the winner for the least detailed as it was taken with the lowest quality setting. The difference in the sharpness of the three test images is hard to see here but I assure you that when viewed within PS CS2 there is a distinct difference. I did not magnify these three images any further than this but I know that should these images be magnified even further then the second image would eventually win out over the other two and would be the selection for a larger print. When I shoot I always use the highest settings available for size and quality. I resize within Photoshop depending on the use intended.
