I haven't posted here for a while, but I hope someone with D700 expertise can help.
I recently purchased a used D700 with ~20,000 shutter actuations. I have two FX lenses: the second version 24-120 zoom (purchased used) and a new 16-35mm zoom. I've been an avid D300 user and have had great success with that camera, so I was really looking forward to the D700.
The D700 images are quite disappointing. In Lightroom 4 they appear washed out, so I wonder if have set something incorrectly or if there is another problem. Shots taken at fairly close or near range exhibit excellent sharpness, but at longer distances I am not experiencing the type of shrpness I had expected from this camera. It's the same with both lenses so I doubt a lens is the problem. I'm shooting RAW.
