Hello All,
I have just purchased a new D100 to get back into the "35mm groove" of shooting however, I am not pleased at all with the sharpness quality of the D100 images. My equipment rundown is as follows:

Nikon D100 (Version 2 firmware)
Tamron 19mm-35mm D AF
Tamron 28mm-200mm D AF

Nikon CP5700
Nikon WA accessory lens
Nikon Tele accessory lens

The images taken with the CP5700 consistantly blow away the D100. Images right out of the 5700 without 40 minutes of post-processing make the D100 look pretty bad. So I asked myself, Why ?? I do not have a logical answer. All of the D100 images are very soft, are underexposed and frankly don't look like the quality of images that should be coming from a $2K digital camera. I have taken JPG images shot with the 5700 straight out of the camera, printed them full 8x10 and they are very, very crisp. Try the same thing with the D100 and there is no comparison. All the D100 are soft and can't begin to compare in quality. Ok...ok I know. Just needed to rant a bit and get it off my chest. I got the D100 to get back the ability to have full lens and exposure control in my photography but I'll give up that ability and go back to my 5700 to get crisp, sharp images if I have to. Thanks for the chance to vent a bit.
