Hi Morris. Thank you for your comments. They are certainly food for thought. I have not tried AF-S for a while. I tend to keep it on AF-C as my subjects are rarely still, lol (the gull and tern would have to be considered exceptions).

Did you see my "test card" shots? I wonder what your thoughts are on those, as I took hundreds of the same picture at a different SS and a few different focal lengths, but they all look equally unsharp to me...assuming I did the test even approximately correctly.

Yes, I took that in.  It's minor compared to the gull.  There may be two issues.  Let's fix the inconsistency with many horrible results.  You can't fine tune till you get that correct.
