"D100 and Post Processing"

I am going to rant and rave a little bit here so just take it with a grain of salt.

Having used my d100 now for about 3 months I have a few observations or comments to make and before I go on I need to give everyone some background on myself. I am by no means a professional or even advanced amature photographer. I love cameras and taking pictures. I understand the mechanical, technical, and functionality of photography. I have alot to learn about composition, lighting, and how to produce a great photograph. I have been having fun with this for about 25 years. NOW FOR THE RANTING

I believe that the d100 in Auto everything mode, should produce a sharp, in-focus, properly exposed photograph without the need for any post processing. Over 90 percent of the photos I take with the d100 need post processing. Sharpness is the big issue, they all seem soft. I am comparing this to my film experience and my digital 995 output. My 995 always produced sharp, well exposed photographs. My film cameras (4004 and N70) never failed to give me a very sharp picture although exposure was sometimes a problem which was mostly me. Anyway if Nikon has done this on purpose, so as to give the photographer all the picture information possible for his/her processing pleasure, I want a button that says "picture taken will not need post processing"

Now I have just sent my camera to Nikon to have the update to the firmware performed and I requested they inspect the camera for proper calibration. I do hope this solves the under-exposure problem and maybe helps with the softness.

I know I have moved myself up in terms of equipment and I must learn to be a better photographer to use it, however I still want my point and shoot mode!!!

Ok, I am done, just don't be too hard on me

I always want the next model up!
