thanks Mako. I appreciate your help. In all pictures I focused on the area by the maroon bush by the building and thought I had focus lock. I will try again.

According to ViewNX2 and other EXIF viewers, focus was never locked in any of the pics. Check the AF/M switch on both lens and camera body. Cycle them to AF. Makes sure the lens is mounted properly, clicks in place, and the lens release button is not stuck...redo testing again. Good luck.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
