That does look awful.  I had been considering one of these lenses.

Please would you tell us how you did it.  Was the camera on a tripod? What as the focus distance?  How did you focus - AF or manual, what focus mode?  I do not understand 'micro-focusing.'

Did you look at it in Nikon view to see the actual focus point? (Must be used before cropping.)
