I NEED Advice on my Workflow and SettingsHey
I did my best to search through the forums before asking this question, but if you guys could kinda tell me how I can get the sharpest, highest quality tours out of my Sigma 8mm and canon 40d. I am using an Agnos TCPShort. It seems like all of my tours are coming out a little bit soft. Ive been using Bracket Exposure and an Aperture of anywhere between 5.6 and 11. I have been using photomatix to blend the pictures and then stitch them in panoweaver. I would like to have my panos look as sharp as possible and they all seem to be a bit too soft. Is there something I am missing. Has anyone found that just perfect sweet spot on a sigma 8 3.5. Do i need to be manual focusing. I've been using Center AF for my focus. Here is an example of one of my tours.

Any tips you can throw my way would be greatly appreciated. One last thing I've noticed that merging in photomatix has been creating some unwanted grain and noise. It can't be my ISO setting because i usually use no more than 500.
