Nice realistic colours in this shot. The 5800 applies a LOT of sharpening to the images. You can see this around the text in the coloured labels. (This photo was taken with medium sharpness).

Lots of the photos taken outside show a lot of flare coming from the sun. The sun here was about 90 degrees to the left.
