I will experiment this weekend with increasing my shutter speed to see if that's my problem. Would you say that shooting handheld at 1/125, f8 would now be at least 1/250 or more to get tack sharp images? I will also shoot with a tripod just to make sure I didn't get a bad copy. I will post images when I get them and maybe you could judge the quality. I'm hoping this will be the answer.
