I have a D50 with the following lenses:
20MM 1:2.8D
70-300MM 1:4-5.6G
28-80MM 1:3.3-5.6G

I am not getting photos that look sharp to me. Yet once in a great while I get one that is really sharp.

I went out yesterday for 3 hours and shot with all 3 lenses, using a tripod and shooting aperture priority. I tried several F stops with each lens. And I was not satisfied with the quality of the photos as far as sharpness.

I am wondering if the fault lies in my abilities, the quality of lens, or the camera needing some service. I am considering renting a high quality lens for one day to see if there is any difference.

Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions at all would be appreciated.
