Hope you are well. I really appreciate your candid feedback. I myself is not sure why the noise is appearing while I crop & resize to a lower resolution. Also, of late I see that the lens is not able to provide adequate details even when I am shooting in RAW. Previously I used to shoot in JPEG & never had any issue like this. I would be grateful if you can help me with your expertise & provide a solution.
Looking forward to hear from you.
