    I have my E-M5 set to Natural +1 sharpening. Am I oversharpening it too much? All taken with Pany 12-35 SOOC JPEG and only resized for upload. I am trying to come up with settings I can use for getting decent SOOC JPEGS. All images are "for home use "only.




    next one using 14-140, cropped


    Appreciate all input

    Looks fine to my eyes and not over sharpened.
    On the other hand sharpening is an easy thing to add to any picture.

    If these are the typical subjects that you intend to capture "for home use," it is acceptable. As I see these on my MacBook Air, they are fine.

    You may find that setting to be overwrought when capturing images of older women when the minute details of the face are simply too much for them to accept and exasperating to "splain" as the photographer.

    The last one looks really wierd, all pixelated. How much of a crop is it?

    No crop, just zoomed in with Pany 14-140 to about 140. Shot JPEG sooc and reduced image quality to be able to upload to this post

    I can see they are sharper than usually unsharpened images, and that's totally fine for this use at least; however I'm not quite a fan of sharpening, and I think somebody said that Oly's quite famous for the jpg denoising and sharpening already.
