Yeah they're pretty much the same tbh, very little difference usually to raw/processed

This may not relate, but since I've been scanning medium and large format negatives over the last few years I've noticed they can take a lot more sharpening in post.

Try this, reduce the size in PS with the "Bicubic for Reduction" setting by 20-30% or so. Then apply an edge mask, view the image at 100% and use unsharp mask with a radius of around 2 increasing amount until you see halos (100-200 range), then back down some.

If it works set it up as a macro that pauses so you can adjust the USM individually.

As far as trading cameras, if I was building a wedding kit I'd look seriously at the Fuji mirror-less cameras, Fuji's DSLRs always made outstanding jpegs from the camera, this line has some very impressive fast lenses, and you could buy two or more for the price of a high end DSLR.

Get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1, two bodies, one fast prime, one zoom, two remote radio triggers and go to town.

Cheers Alan, I'm going to try that PS technique and see what happens. I am also considering a 5D4, there's so many people in Canon forums having the same issues as me and those issues don't exist with the 5D4 apparently.
