This outdoor far-field scene explores sharpness near to far and across the frame at 28mm (equivalent to ~23mm field of view on a 35mm full-frame DSLR).
This wide a field of view typically requires some lens tradeoffs, a “balancing” of various competing image quality interests. And that indeed is what is found.
This finely detailed image cries out for viewing on the iMac 5K (or at least a 4K display) so as to render the fine details of twigs and bark and moss in a far more compelling way than a standard display.
