#16. "RE: D5100 sharpness"

I don't understand. After reading the manual, I get the impression that the settings are adjusting "processing" in the camera. It seems that if the sharpness is set to zero, there should be some kind of setting of the optics that would give a sharply focused picture. The film cameras didn't have any in-camera processing. With the 5100 set for the largest, finest pix, when viewed in a size to fit the monitor, the pix are nice. But when displayed at full size (so that only about 20% of the picture shows) it is definitely out of focus. Shouldn't we be trying to start with a sharply focused picture and then process from there, rather than shooting a pic that isn't in focus and using processing to get it to where it should have been in the first place?
