I think this isn't as sharp as it suppose to be coming out from D300s and 70-200 VRII. Let me know what you guys think. I am still within the return period. Thanks

I don't know about the d300s but I do know that my 100% raw crops don't look perfectly sharp.

I'm on my laptop so it's hard to tell (rotten screen).

How does your D700 do with the new 70-200?

Much sharper than D300S
Edited: I assume D700 is much sharper than D300S, I am not sure if it's this much different.

So, maybe I got a bad copy of D300s? only couple pictures come out sharp from about 10 shots.

Have you tested with other lenses ?. If they all produce similar output then it's your camera.

maybe.
I would try some tests.

Try the tripod thing...see how static shots are.
Try the lens with your D700 and see what your results are.
Try to eliminate any possible user error...then you'll know.

When focusing on moving subjects you have to allow for user error. Try with static subjects. Less pissed off static subjects.

I looked at the picture and the focus box shows clearly that the area in it is a considerable variation in depth so the camera will focus on what the closest section is -right? Her fingers look focussed to me.

If you are going to make jokes on a forum you have to do a better job at illustrating the joke. That is what the smilies are for! Let's get back on topic and help out the person having trouble.

I dont' think the focus is on her finger.
Man. I don't even know what's sharp or not anymore. I might just go to B&H to test out a demo D300s. I might be just too picky. -_-

Did you have VR on or off?
Also, there's some JPEG compression artifacts so it's difficult to see the sharpness.

That's a 100% crop correct?
