The 'high-res ISO samples' up to and including 1600 ISO look a bit odd to me - either out of focus or camera shake, particularly noticeable on the + signs upper left. Not good on the eyesWink

Hi Pete, the images are sharp in the middle, and after ISO1600, the aperture goes from f/5.6 to f/7.1 which would explain it becoming sharper.
