I have been using this body for over a year. It is amazing what this camera can do. I never had a faster one. Out-of-focus less than before. You must get accustomed. This is not a point and shoot camera. Start reading basic information on shooting with a camera like this. It has so much potential. I was also worried because of the poor quality of my first pictures. That has changed completely. Take time in getting used to this fantastic body. Shooting means: check the conditions, make the right decisions how to shoot the picture and than start shooting. You will love the results as soon you get used to it. It is great on sports, portrait, landscape. Enjoy!
