Had to update my system software to install the control utility, but finally got brave enough to do it and snapped a photo of the same 57-D as in last thread (#9 in the roll).
Here is the coin with my Nikon D7000:
And here is the coin with my Canon T2i:
I am almost speechless. The Canon image is so much sharper than the Nikon image that it is laughable.
A while back I complained that a lot of coin images I saw online were inexplicably "easy to look at". All my images from the Nikon have a sort of "crosseyed fuzzy" look to them compared to the Canon, which displays that "easy to look at" quality on my very first photo with it.
I've taken my last coin photo with the D7000, and the T2i now has a permanent home on the bellows.

Ray, awesome comparison! And, welcome to the Canon world!
Do you surmise these differences are because of the EFSC? I presume these were shot with the 75ARD1? The close-up image really makes the difference obvious. The T2i is a great camera for the roughly $500 price tag!
