Nikon 300mm f4 softness on D7100
4 months ago

Received a used 300mm f4 lens and am not getting the sharpness I expected from this highly touted lens.  The below pics were at taken on a monopod.   I've taken pics with my tamron 75-300 and the quality of those were equal to this lens.  Thinking it has some issue and considering returning it. Thought I'd seek some input here before I return the lens.  I don't have any sharpness issues with my other lens i use on the same camera.
