Hello, I have been a professional photographer since 1974 working in the Commercial, Military and Education areas. I use Phase medium format equipment in my day job and Canon 5D and 5D11 personally. I recently bought a Nikon D800 with a Tamron SP 24-70 f2.8 for myself and after hundreds of shots I have yet to find a single one that I am happy with!

I have scoured the internet looking for information on achieving sharp images and downloaded as many real world samples as I can find and I have to say I don't think those are any better.

I am talking about hand held shots inparticular and although I'm getting on a bit I don't think I shake that much.

I notice that most recommendations are for higher ISO and shutter speeds than you might otherwise have used.

Here is a full size out of the camera jpeg for your comments:

No, but I got rid of my d800 for exactly what your experiencing . There appears to have been a bad batch made  with focusing problems. It did not matter what piece of glass I was using it wasn't sharp. My buddies d800 is tack sharp. Take it back if that's an option or take it in to nikon for repair.?  I'm waiting for a d800s.
