This queation may belong in a different area, but I will start here and if its wrong area.I am sure it will get moved to the correct area. I thought it would get more exposure here than another.
Anyway. I purchased a Nikon 300 28 from another photographer. This lens is one of the older type. Probably 10 years old but in GREAT shape, cosmetically. I cant take a sharp picture with it.
I get verification from camera subject is in focus and have did the diopter adjustment. ALL out of focus. Everyone.The guy said the lens was in " great shape". It is cosmetically. Looks brand new, right out of box and I didnt have to give an arm and one leg for it. I am not sure on what end the problem is on.
Any idea what could be happening here.Thanks in advance for your help.
To be clear, at the risk of being blunt: "300 28" is of no help for us. So I'd advise you to:
- clarify which model (I can think of at least about 5 or 6 between AF and MF and AF-S and AF-I and AF-D, with or without VR) you're speaking about and... - post example photos, with complete exif data in them.
Then, and only then, will the Nikonians body of knowledge be of any use. Short of you doing that, we'll keep within the SWAG area, and you don't really want to know what that acronym stands for.
Happy Easter to you, by the way!

All of the Nikkor 300mm f/2.8's are known for being very sharp. Please tell us the lens model, the shutter speeds, and the support (monopd, tripod, head) that you are using. Posting a sample image or two with the Exif data intact would also be helpful.
