2) Shoot in aperture priority with F figures best for this lens in terms of sharpening (7.1-8-11)
3) Change ISO so your shooter speed is around 1/1000 for best result

Halo is result of highlight and clarity boosting. You may or reduce clarity and do not move highlights too far both ways or (my way) use correcting brush at problem parts (borders of contrast elements and sky).
