FutureFocus,

I just want to say this: do not be intimidated that many of the folks on Nikonians are truly great and professional photographers. I am neither. Everyone here tries to be helpful regardless of their level of experience.

Post any picture that you think illustrates the problem. When you write a message, just below is the "Click here to choose your attachments". The only difficulty you will have is that you have to down sample the picture to be small enough to post.

I have the same camera and lens and there is no reason they should not produce tack sharp images. I would not recommend using "Vibrant" that over saturates pictures.

You should tweek the diopter to your eye so the image you see in the camera is sharp.

I would boost sharpening by one notch.

As to shutter speed, I would not hand hold shooting under 1/100th.

There is no reason not to go above 800 ISO. You are limiting the potential of the camera. Try test shooting photos at 1600 and 3200. You will be surprised how little you lose in the process.

Good luck.
