"1.3x Crop Sharp enough?"

About the 3rd day I had my D7100, I shot this squirrel using a 70-300 VR lens (No filter) @300mm f8 1/500 ISO 1000 Handheld.

This is a 100% crop.

Full EXIF is available.

Everything points to the D7100 being the best introduction in years, with no weaknesses. Other than buffer depth, few could think of any more to ask for.
Nice sharp, detailed shot!

Thanks Stan,

The thing that kinda gets me is that this is sharp at the long end of the 70-300 VR which usually doesn't get a lot of love. This was sort of a throw away shot. Then when I was transferring some photos to my step-son's server, I saw this one, and thought it looked pretty good.

When I go outside, I start shooting anything that moves & some things that don't. Hopefully, I will learn something, and the great ones always say, "Practice, practice, practice."

I am having problems with a couple of things that puzzle me. One is most likely the environment. The other, I want to analyze further, and then get some analysis from those on here.

The buffer is also a concern for me. Probably shoot close to 3,000 images this week at 3 days of track meets (assuming they make in spite of the rain predictions). Will probably switch to JPEG to reduce the size of images flowing through the buffer. Shooting in burst mode seemed better on the D7000. Still too early to tell.

I'm hoping that the 1.3x crop mode will keep me from having to switch lenses or carry two cameras.

The cameras these days are crazy good, aren't they? That's a great shot (but you get some credit too! The camera didn't do ALL the work!)

Thanks Jeff. After beginning to doubt myself with the back focusing of my D7000 (Repaired under warranty), sometimes it's hard to believe that I shot some of the stuff I find on the memory card of the D7100.

Now, I want to shoot everything. After the next two weeks, I'll be looking at shooting some BIF, and hang gliders to redeem some of my former lousy shots.

This shot makes me want o buy a 70-300mm again. Great shot here and I think it's sharp enough too. I have a 80-200 f/2.8 and a 200-500mm. I want a Tokina wide angle now.
