I have been having trouble getting as sharp a photo as I thought I should with my D800E. Thinking the lens was not resolving well enough for the extended resolution of the D800E I broke down and ordered a new 70-200mm 2.8 VRII, got it today, it is an amazing lens, it solved any sharpness problems I was having. I used it vr on and vr off and it shoots nothiing but sharp! I have been shooting for 45 years and never had a problem with camera shake till I got the D800E, its a fantastic camera but it definately demands the best in technique and len's . Now I need to find some work so I can get the 24-70 2.8. The picture I attaching is as it came from the camera, 1/100 f11 200mm Its a Christmas cactus that I gave my wife when were were dating 37 years ago, neither of us left !
