I am new to digital photography and was hoping to be able to figure out basics before making a spring training trip later this month. I have a 70-300mm AFS VR lens and all photos are blurry beyond focal length of about 170mm.... I was practicing outside (partly cloudy day) and tried in Autofocus mode on camera and lens w/o success. Lens instructions say that camera should be in AF (C/S) although in
AF camera is in AF-A. Does this make a difference? Tried several different manual modes w/o much success either. Do I have to use a tripod with this lense- won't be very practical in baseball stadium! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
