I could really use some insight into this problem. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is this a problem with my individual camera? Is this typical of all of these sensors (I have used an A7 and I had an A7R, but did not experience it with them). I think it is doubtful that it is some camera setting since I only shoot raw files. Please see the files:
The raw file was processed in Lightroom 5.7.1, output at the native size of 6000 x 4000 pixels. Sharpening for crop 2 and the full image was: amount 45/radius 0.5/detail 30/no masking. No noise reduction, no clarity applied. Output settings for sharpening are light for gloss paper. No sharpening at all applied to crop 1.
I am experiencing this with all lenses I use on this camera,including the Sony Zeiss 1.8/55 which is even worse. The more contrasty the lens, the worse the problem. It is scene related, appearing in high contrast details like tree branches against the sky. This problem exists regardless of which raw converter I use (Aperture, Iridient Developer, Lightroom). I had the same experience with my Canon 5D2 in similar circumstances. But I have never experienced it with my Nikon 800e or my Sigma DP Merrills.
