PhillipWhat are your settings shutter speed etcHow high is your ISO settingsJpeg only or are you shooting raw If jpeg where do you have camera controls setSharpning - contrast - ect.Are you sharpening in what solft ware. I have found the higher the camera pixel count The better your shooting skills must beSo hand holding never less than 125 or 200 secondAlso if your using VR wait till it settles down After you have achieved focus has your subject moved out of critical focusI think you said your using 18/105 lens If so don't shoot that any lower than about F8 I do think sweet is F5.6 to F8 Meet shooting and enjoy your Nikons Jeff
