Is shutter speed the cultprit? (Can't get sharp D800E @100%)
Oct 30, 2012

I am sorry but I had written a much more detailed post and have lost my window of time to do it right, and cannot delete this. I am trying to get help micro-adjusting focus on a D800E. I can't seem to figure it out and have read a half-dozen tutorials. I'm an idiot. These are two 100% crops from last night. Neither are sharp. I suppose it is me, but am wondering how sharp @100% I should expect. This new website seems buggy When I inserted images, it deleted my entire post. Now, it is centering my text and I can't move it rag right!

sunset shot, M mode, f/7.1 50 mm 1.4, iso 100, 1/15 sec, MUP, exp delay 3 sec, on tripod

daylight shot, P mode, f/8 50 mm 1.4, iso 100, 1/250 sec, d800e, handheld
