Thanks for the comments! I'll have to take another look at things and where the focus point was. I could have sworn that it was on the eye, but not 100% I'm using AF backfocus, so can't really confirm now. I think because of the fact that I had to do some noise reduction, 'cause at 3200 ISO, I lost sharpness as well, resulting in softer image details. Need better light to draw any more conclusions I think.

At the iso speeds I think the head and eyes of the ducks look pretty good.  I think a lot of people need to quite micro looking at images at 100% at these iso speeds and expecting too much.  Wood ducks are neat and I like the first one of the male best.  To reduce noise at these speeds with a dx camera will with most programs reduce sharpness a little.
