I'm curious about this. With a 1/400 shutter speed, stabilization in the lens, and F8, you should be getting a really sharp picture with any camera.

At 1/400 shutter speed, stabilization should be turned off. This is a fast enough speed to freeze the image from any fl. on a 24-70 and stabilization will do more harm than good.

Fair..I use 1/500 as my guideline for when to turn off VR, but 1/400 is close enough.
