Thanks, everyone, for your thoughtful comments to the many questions posed on this site. I have learned a great deal about my D100, and photography in general.

I recently purchased a D100 and have found several images where the pic is sharp in the upper third and soft in the lower third when shot horizontally and sharp on the left while soft on the right when shot vertically. I'm using a Tokina 28-80 ATX Pro lens. Has anyone seen this type of problem before? I've wondered if maybe the CCD is slanted a bit, the lens is defective, or maybe the photographer is not quite right;)! I've followed the many good suggestions about shooting only RAW, using no sharpening except in Capture or PS, etc.... In fact, when the images are sharpened, the sharp areas get too sharp while the soft areas look great. I am going to try to attach two of the images where this problem is seen - notice my daughter at the lower part of the image compared to my son at the upper part, and in the other image my son's right shoulder sleeve compared to his face.

Thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions.
