Hi Marty,

Thank you for the quick confident response. I'll not abandon pumper type lenses due to this concern.

It seems that there has been some small fall off in sharpness
on my D300 w 18-200 mm DX lens combination in the last 4 1/3
years. 92,000 snaps on the D300, and about 130,000 images made
with the 18-200.

A problem I did have was a tiny tick wandering into my D300
and then strolling around on the ground glass focusing screen.
He eventually moved out of sight and is presumably dried up
in some corner. I've not noticed any malfunction as a result.

Thanks again,
Tom
