comment Does Lightroom apply edits in the order I do them, or does it intelligently reorder them?
John, I think that @MichaelNielsen has precisely got the point of my question (which I don't think will receive much further clarification unless someone from LR team steps in...): what happens if I increase the contrast after having sharpened (producing artifacts)? nothing, if the engine decides to apply them later: a lot of image deterioration if the engine doesn't re-order them. Which could explain the behaviour observed by Petr in his comment. As soon as possible I will do some experiment on some test image to convince myself....lately I am really short on free time :-(

Thanks @john thomas. The way in which non destructive editing works was clear to me. My question is about your next-to-last paragraph: "the program's editing engine being responsible of applying them in the what it thinks to be correct order". So really in LR you can sharpen when you want and how many times you want without fear of degradation, hoping that the engine is able to see-through the potentially interrelated steps of sharpening (with its halos) and noise reduction, image rotation (which must move each pixel, including those added by sharpening...) and so on.

comment How can a high resolution camera matter when the output is low resolution?
@Michael but in a resized reproduction those could be for all purposes not apparent? Or not?

comment Cause of grainy photos?
now I understand, actually I asked a question about it some days ago. photo.stackexchange.com/q/30798/5032 :-) You are probably interested in the "Zeroed" setting which doesn't apply anything (as far as I know).

comment Cause of grainy photos?
I'm not sure to have understood, what you are saying is not in line with my experience with LR. Maybe you could ask a question about it with all the details so we can solve/clarify the issue in an adequate venue and not in these comments?

comment Cause of grainy photos?
Usually it's the other way around: the jpg coming straight out of camera has been automatically sharpened I an irreversible way, while the raw file is mostly untouched and you can decide if, how and how much sharpening apply. For this reason an unprocessed raw file will be displayed as a softer image than a "typical" jpg.

comment Is it normal for the zoom to be loose on a Sony 18-250 lens?
Don't know the lens but if all it takes is a minimal slope, the answer is probably yes. For comparison, a Canon 18-200 lenghtens a little if it is pointing downward (like if you are carrying the camera around) but othewise stays put.
