Dear all
A friend of mine who is very much into macro (flowers, butterflies etc) bought a d3100 and a 105 micro Vr just to get the ultimate in macro.
I talked her into it.
Unfortunately after several thousands of photos there are only few that are good in her eyes. Main complaint is that there is insufficient sharp detail in the subject. Increasing the f stops makes the background not the fuzzy background she likes.
Only the 50mm performs more or less to her likings. All her photos are without tripod as she did with her Lumix until now.
These photos are great and made with ease, but lack the capabilities to truly enlarge. That why she bought the D3100 and V
She tried presetting A, preset S and manual focussing and it looks wonderful in the viewfinder.... only later on there is this big deception.
She has the lens now a couple of moths and only complaints. I turn to you and your knowledge to find a possible solution.
Att photo is a 1/250 sec at f4 at 100ASA
