    Hey, its his pictures and choice. All digital pictures need SOME sharpening. I agree that his processing is a bit beyond what I like, but it is his creation. Iíve seen in-camera jpeg engines use sharper settings with obvious halos by default much stronger than that.

    Hmmmm... Where are you seeing any halos in the pictures above? Iím not sure what youíre referring to.

    And Iím quite sure you guys arenít talking about over-sharpening, for whatever youíre referring to... I have my preset at ~70 in Lightroom, which is quite low compared to what Iíve seen from some pros like Burkard. Itís all good.

    Ok, so if I wanted to convert to mirrorless, having an 80D setup, I can go slowly right? I could sell the body and get an M50 + adapter for about the same price and use my EF-S lenses until I sell / swap them around, correct?

    Donít misunderstand me, I donít have any problems with the way you post-process. And I get a little miffed at people who think it is their right to police how others post-process.

    That said, if you look back at some of the earlier pictures you posted in this thread there are some slight halos along the edge of tree trunks, etc. look closely at the walls on that shot looking out of the tunnel.

    Gotcha... I looked at that pic, and it actually appears to be more chromatic aberration vs a sharpening halo. I was actually surprised at how well that picture came out given the dynamic range between the bright background and the arch, so I'll take it. Especially for the 18-150 "do it all" lens.

    Yeah, there is CA, too. Lightroom is able to clean up most CA, although you may have to tweak the controls if it doesnít autofix it by clicking the box.

    The absolute best Iíve found for fixing CA is DxO, provided they have a module for your camera/lens combo. That might not be the case for an adapted lens, unfortunately.

    Another example where I saw a halo without CA was the side of that large rock against the sky. Most people probably wouldnít notice it. Itís a curse that once you train yourself to see them you see them all the time.

    Again, not criticizing, just pointing it out. I do like the pictures you are taking with this camera.

    Sure thing, here you go. Lenses from R to L: Canon EF-M 18-150, Canon EF-S 55-250, Sigma 17-70, and EF-M 11-22 with the adapter in front.
