I was told that lens is just soft at 300mm. I have one, and found that disappointing. If your lens is sharp through the rest of the range, fine tuning probably will not help.

my 70-300vr is pretty good up to 300mm, try stopping down a little or take a little more care re technique.

I did try stopping it down, not a lot of difference, maybe a little.  I was trying to shoot something further away.  My technique seems adequate until 300mm, and was probably pretty good on the tripod   So I am not buying user error this time.

I am not saying it is horrendous.  But not as sharp as I would have hoped for.  And apparently, that is known, or so I was told.
