This may be a VR issue...
In reply to spineguy, Jun 4, 2012

Since the entire image is blurry, this looks like the VR in the lens did not get a chance to settle down before the image was captured. This has happened to me several times with the low to mid end Nikon bodies and my 70-200 VR I lens. Brace yourself on a fence, switch off the VR, and try the capture again. With a shutter speed of 1/500 and above, even at 200mm, you should have enough shutter speed to pull off a clean image. Let us know how you make out...
