I recently had to copy many pages from an old printed book using my D90.

The camera was handheld, under office fluorescent lighting, and I used the built-in flash, with the 18-55 kit lens with a protective skylight filter.

As many said before stop down to F8 or something around that, increase contrast and WHY would you have "skylight" on your lens for this work ? As I can see you were inside so no sky there !

Any bit of glass in front of the lens WILL degrade quality regardless. Use these filters just when necessary.
