D5100 sharpness.
I bought a refurbished D5100 about 3 months ago and although I didn’t get to use it much until recently I was never real pleased with the results. The photos, when blown up to 100%, always seem to be a shade out of focus. I normally assume that any problem is caused by something I’m doing wrong, either something moved or I’m getting camera shake or I just screwed up. But I also have a D60 that I’ve used for the past few years that takes very sharp photos. So yesterday I took some shots with both cameras on a tripod, same target, same lens, same settings, used a remote shutter release and sure enough the D60 is sharper when blown up. I tried this with several lenses, 35 1.8,18-105, 105 2.8,and 55-200 with the same results. Shouldn’t I expect as good or better results with the 5100?
