  • Replied in Model OP! :)
    Thank you, and likewise...appreciate everyone who took the time to offer the helpful advice. It's a huge relief to know it's operator error and not the lens. And Warkari, thank you for the link! I ...
  • Thank you to everyone who generously offered suggestions and advice, it's truly appreciated and taken to heart! Besides looking out for conditions that can cause air turbulence, I'll try turning VR ...
  • Great advice, thank you!
  • What I thought was sharp in the viewfinder apparently was not after reviewing my photos. Maybe it's time for new glasses :) I checked to see where the center focus point was in ViewNX just out of ...
  • Exactly! Looking back through the photos, what I thought was clear in the viewfinder evidently was not. And this wasn't the first time I've been frustrated with blurry images at this same ...
  • Yes to 1 & 2. Used this as a guideline to test: https://photographylife.com/how-to-quickly-test-your-dslr-for-autofocus-issues. I don't recall where I got the information at the moment, but the ...
  • Yes, though I do realize it only shows which focus point was used and not where actual focus was when shutter was released (or at least how I understand it).

  • Yes, I definitely need to do some tests. I thought initially it was backfocusing slightly, but because I shoot mostly birds with this lens, when focus was on the eye, the beak was sometimes soft ...
  • I never thought about this, but I think you may be on to something. It was 30-degrees outside and the car inside was warm--too warm, in fact. Now that I recall, it's when we have big swings in ...
  • Created discussion thread Focusing issues with 200-500?
    Was wondering if anyone else was experiencing similar issues with this lens not acquiring sharp focus intermittently. I've owned it for about a year-and-a-half and have been happy for the most ...
  • I use the Nikon 200-500 with my D500, and while I am happy with the results for the most part, it too can suffer from soft images when the subject is small in the frame. There's just not enough ...
