I just bought this combination a few weeks ago and have been having trouble getting some clean pictures from it. I bought my D5100 with the 18-55mm kit lens. I get very good pictures with this lens. I have been shooting with the Sigma lens on a tripod at all different ranges of the lens and they all seem to be grainy and not well in focus when blown up to actual size. I have shot with VR on and off and tried at different ISO speeds as well.

Would somebody with experience with this setup please lend me some advise on what I should do or try? I have seen some great pictures from people using this same setup so I know it is capable. Thanks in advance for your help.
