Not Out of focus

This is not my D5200 or D7100 and the former isn't back focused at f8.  It's just soft compared to the D7100 because of the blur filter. Download the raws and see for yourself:

As pointed out many times...in this particular example the D5200 images is out of focus. That amount of blur is atypical for a normal D5200 or even D5100 image. Might be soemthing else but that is simply not a typical shot.

No, it is most certainly not out of focus, it is merely soft.  The D7000 is softer yet.  The coffee cup handle is in perfect focus in front of the scale, as are the yarn samples behind it.  At f8, it's what you would expect with a 70mm lens.  Imaging Resource knows what they are doing. The crops are right in line with the results of the D600 and the D7000, as Renato showed a few weeks back.  They call it a blur filter for a reason.
