Re: Lens suggestion - prime, or?

I haven't purchased anything yet.  Still checking on things (I am slow).  But, I wanted to come back and update this old thread.

Sometimes it is the gear.

I've done a bunch of focus tests now, and sent some to Nikon.  It does appear now that I have some backfocus on my D7000.

More appropriate to this thread - Nikon says from the photos, there definitely appears to be something wrong with that 18-70mm lens.  In some of the photos I sent them, it was very out of focus, and even live view can be very soft.  So at least that lens will need to be serviced, or replaced.

Still plenty I can learn and improve, but my problem with this lens was - the lens.
