I have to agree that the complaint of softness kind of puts me off to this review. Unless there is a physical problem (not likely) that is causing front or back focus then there is no way that the camera can be inherently “soft.” It is possible that Nikon is using a slightly more aggressive AA filter but that should not cause any significant sharpness issues.

The most likely cause for the complaints, including this guys, is that he has not adjusted his technique for the higher pixel density. This initial flood of softness complaints shows up every time the mega pixel count (pixel density) is increased. I saw this issue when I moved up from the 6MP D50 to the 10MP D80 and again to a lesser extent going to the 12MP D300. After a couple of weeks of shooting at the higher pixel density and figuring out your camera/software settings this apparent image softness will go away as if it never existed.

This is a case were we need to review the reviewer. So far we have had some promising feedback on this camera but I am still awaiting reviews from reputable reviewers before making any judgment.
