Did you post the jpeg or developed raw? What sharpening settings are you using? For an image like this I tend to narrow the radius to about 0.7, detail between 50 and 70, and amount to taste but usually 30-50. Masking is set to about 20.
In your first image something looks off. The second doesn't look too bad.
The ones I posted are developed from RAW.
The SOOC JPG looks almost identical, so I don't think it's a LR problem. My base sharpening is radius .7, detail 50, amount 35, masking is usually around 60, but I vary it depending on the image.
I am going to try an image with my kit lens and NEX tomorrow (time & weather permitting) to see how it looks. I don't remember my 18-55 NEX kit looking quite this bad, and I thought the Fuji kit lens would be great in comparison. It does so well in reviews and lens tests.
If I return the camera, I also need to return the 35 and 60mm lenses... Bought them as the current package deal that is going.
This is another sample, I thought this picture would turn out kind of cool, but it's pretty darned blurry throughout... I focused about 1/3 of the way in, on the area that I show for the cropped part of the image.
