I just want to express my appreciation to all of the members who participate in these forums and share their time and knowledge. I just upgraded from a D40 to a D7000 (birthday present from the BF ) and have been more than a little overwhelmed and afraid of it. It seemed like too much camera for me given my meager skills. I, too, had the soft focus complaint and while I knew it was me and not the camera I didn't know how to overcome it. I have spent much time here reading and reading and learning little bits and pieces. Slowly I am getting more comfortable with the D7000 and understanding how it operates and how to use it. It is definitely a huge learning leap from the D40. This weekend I managed to get a nice shot of some apple blossoms and a decent shot (once it was cropped) of a turkey vulture in flight. Anyway, just wanted to send a big thank you. This is an awesome site and well worth the price of membership. I admire the respect and professionalism that is seen here. You make the most basic beginner (like me) feel welcome and capable of taking better photos.
