I am a bit late on to this thread but suffer the same problems with 500 f4. I have recently purchased it and tried many combos of settings, tested the camera focus adjustment, and had some tuition on technique etc. Get reasonable results with flying birds but stationery shots are soft. Generally keep shutter speed at 1000+ f4 and ISO 200-400 range.

Not sure that my D7000 camera can bring out the best of the lens and am thinking about upgrading. However, none of the Nikon higher performance models can achieve the same fps rate of the D7000.

My main interest is bird photography.
