    These photos are very good and look exceptionally sharp. Nicely done! Is there any post-production work or is it the lens by itself that gives you this result? I have the same camera and two sigma lens (18-50 f2.8 EX DC Macro, 150-500 f5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM) and never get this kind of sharpness.

    Best regards!

    jeff tchaderjian....I am going to make two assumptions...please forgive me if I infer-wrong...

    1st Assumption - you are probably using a UV filter on the lens...
    2nd Assumption - you are not using a mono-pod for the shots...

    And just a side note...a Polorizer on a very sunny day is a must...

    Ok put your 150-500 on a monopod when you shoot...to help you balance out better....second...take the UV filter off...I have found that they are great in protecting your lens...but soften-up the image when used...

    Use SPP and shoot in x3f format...when you import the image into SPP you can sharpen it there...and play with the balances...then export the image as a JPG then bring it into Lightroom/PS/or NX2...for further manipulation...if it is needed...

    Hope this helps out a little....
