I posted a while ago with a focusing problem with my D2X. I received some really good tips, especially about updating the firmware (which I did). STILL shots were a little soft and had to be sharpened in Picture Project. So now I was totally frustrated. So I get a bright idea, although it was an expensive way to test the camera, I went out and bought a new 28-70mm f2.8 lens. STILL some shots are soft. In fact the one that drove me the most crazy was the one of 2 birds on a birdfeeder. They were directly opposite of each other, one on the right side of the frame and the other on the left side of the frame. I put the focusing sensor on the bird on the right and figured that they'd both be focused since they were on the same plane. But, that wasn't the case. The bird on the left was distinctly softer than the bird on the right. They were no more than 4 inches away from each other and I was 15 feet away shooting at a shutter speed of 125 @ f5.6 on a tripod and there was no wind with lots of direct and bounced sunlight. I took more bird shots that were soft, but this really stuck out. Anyone have any suggestions????????? I'd really appreciate it.

I am getting very disappointed with this camera.
