Hi everybody , sure hope you can help me .
I purchased a 2nd hand D7100 c/w 2 lenses .. I'm currently using a VR 10-105ed dx lens .. whilst it takes reasonable pictures , they are just not as sharp as I'm expecting.
As to my background , I was a photographer in The NZ forces for 20 years before retiring. Starting on 5x4 Linhof plate cameras , roll film cameras .. ( 6x7 Pentax - favorite ) and many different Nikon's of various models .. all film , It was not uncommon to shoot 10 or 20 rolls per day .. so I'm quite familiar with F/nos , shutter speeds film speeds etc etc as well as film processing ..
Back to the d7100 .. Its just not as sharp as I would like . Ive been going thru the AF fine tuning process .. trying all manner of settings both +ve and -ve .. but cannot get the lens to go crisp ..
Am I missing something .. I know how to hand hold a camera as well as use a tripod .. etc
I'm certainly puzzled ..
I also own 2 coolpix cameras L 820 and L120 as well as an Old Nikkormat 35mm camera .. so I'm certainly a Nikon fan
Any help to make an old man happy .. greatly Appreciated
