Hi Len. Yes, I shoot on a tripod (using Live View) 99.9% of the time, especially for my product and landscape images, as I realize that LiveView flips the mirror up and combines the 2 second delay prior to opening the shutter, so I feel I'm getting the best results from the camera in this mode of shooting. That said, the attached image of Aruba Palapa Detail was hand-held (shooting through viewfinder) using the 16-85 (with a B+W filter on the lens), and I feel that this image is sufficiently sharp.
Do you recommend a certain workflow (GIMP, ViewNX, Capture NX, etc.) for optimum sharpness with Nikon NEF or jpeg files? (If you read my comment to Marty, you'll see I'm having issues installing/opening Adobe apps, which is a bit disturbing, since my app of choice has always been Photoshop, but now I can't even open it. Working to rectify this issue ASAP.) Thank you sir,
Steve
