    Default Need D800 Help

    Having been "wowed" by many of the D800 images I have seen , I bought one myself. I have yet to get an image I am happy with. The images I shoot with my Nikon 600 F4 AF-S II(Non VR) just don't seem sharp. I have also been un-impressed with photos I have shot with my 70/200 F2.8 VR , my 28/70 F2.8(nonVR) and my 17/35 F2.8(non VR). I have been shooting with a D3s and have loved this camera from day one. I am thinking I might need to fine tune my AF and don't have a lens allign. I know there is a way to do this by shooting a piece of news paper or a dollar bill. My question, for this method, is how far away to be for the lenses mentioned and at what f stop to do this at. I don't think this is a camera shake issue as I have a Gitzo Tri pod and Whimberly head for the 600 and a good tri pod and ball head for the other configurations.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Joe,
    I microadjust my cameras in the field and often on the subject I am photographing. See:

    Your question might get more response if it was moved to the gear forum.
