Hello,

I have the D7000 using the Nikkor 24-70 ED 2.8 Lens and if I got 10 pictures out of 1000 that I would say could be good that's alot. And sadly I have had the camera since it launched! At first I thought it was the 18-200 Lens so I bought the new 24-70 and I am convinced the pictures are worse but since I paid $1600 for the lens I don't want to give up on it.

I am sure I am doing something wrong but have tried many different settings and cannot seem to get a decent shot.

Alot of the time my ISO shoots up to 6400 and kills the image and other times the image is just too dark or out of focus. (I use auto ISO) I use Aperture priority for still images and Shutter priority for Moving images. I even bought the Light SB910 for low light shots, and still bad pictures.

Anyway here is a picture I took today in the middle of a bright afternoon of my dogs.

And btw I have both Thom Hogans Complete guide and also the Mastering the D7000 book. And as much as I am ashamed to admit it I took 5 classes and still I am ready to throw it in the garbage.

D7000
24-70 2.8 Nikkor
AF-C
Shutter priority
F5.6
1/500
ISO-200
Exposure Bias-0
Focal length: 24

Can anyone tell me what I did wrong? why is the image so dark? Shutter speed to high?

Thanks!!
