I know it's been asked before, so redirect me to a past thread if need be. I am drooling over those images I see that are tack sharp, especially with people in the photos (not up close portraits) ...also the white balance and color has a certain clarity to it that I can not seem to come up with. I would post an example but have yet to figure that out... I shoot with a Canon 50D and currently only have the kit lens 28-135mm...I realize it is at it's sharpest at the 9-11 ap. range...yet STILL I long for some really sharp images. I know part of it is lens quality. I also wonder if all those images I see are RAW? I shoot JPEG because its what I know...its easy and I'm just a hobbyist...but I wonder if this is something that will help and is worth figuring out and using space for? Thanks!
