really? can you post an example? do you shoot NEF?

I am amazed at the number of people on this discussion group who are having problems getting good color, exposure, sharpness, contrast... There must be something wrong with Nikon QA, or else a lot of people are having problems getting the camera to perform well.

For comparison sake, here is an image that I shot 30 minutes ago.

Nikon D100, v1.0 firmware, NEF format, ISO 200
Nikkor 60mm 2.8d, manual focus
Aperture priority, f/25, 1.3sec, 0 EV (exactly what the camera meter said)
Tone comp: Auto, White balance: Incandescent
Sharpening : Normal (doesn't matter with NEF anyway)
Noise Reduction: On
Color Mode: II

I used a single incandescent bulb held over the subject, obviously camera was on a tripod.

I didn't change anything to the image, just added a border, resized, and saved as JPG. The results are pretty consistent with what I get whenever I shoot. I always shoot NEF, and recommend it if you haven't tried it yet.
