GH2 Stills look soft (Tokina 28-70m f/2.8 + Metabones)
  • Recently I started taking stills with my gh2 in addition to the amazing video performance.

    When I focus, whether through the LCD or LVF just before the image is in focus to my eye it looks soft and dreamy more so than out of focus, and beyond the subject it will start to actually look out of focus.

    I took some when it actually looked IN FOCUS and I feel like it just doesn't look as sharp as my old Canon 60D (By quite a bit to be honest)

    I'll post a picture so you can see. I shot this in manual, f/2.8 at 70mm on a tripod with around 160 shutter speed. I'll post a before and after grade.

    Do you think this is an operator, lens, or camera problem?

    Also please do critique my grade, I'm relatively new to all this.
