Hi all,

I´m going to do a little more editing with this image because it seems to be soft overall but using "unsharp mask" for a second time it became, to be optimist, really horrible due to the amount of noise.
Do you have some advices or "trick" to improve the overall quality and then try to upload it?

Looks slightly blurry or out of focus. Whenever that happens, finidng the right amount of sharpening is just impossible. Maybe you have a sharper one from the same sequence?

I need to give a look at the sequence but using the AF-C I think that the problem is not only for this one but for the entire sequence and the most important thing now is to find out the possible reasons because I´m sure that the focus were ok but it seems to be blurry even at my eyes on another screen and to be honest I do not know weather is a lens issue (without VR) or the shutter time to low but for the liner I used the same one and I haven´t had this kind of issue :scratchchin:

This one is from another sequence but IMO seems blurry even with an higher shutter speed.

Shooting at F4 and a shutter speed of 1/2000 is probably the culprit then. Better would be F8 and a shutter speed of around 1/500. So I agree it's likely blur and a depth of field/out of focus issue.

I hope so because I´ve given a quick look at some older images and are all with a minimum of F6 and a shutter speed of 1/1650 (never higher) due to the fact that the lens hasn´t the VR.
It´s definitely time for a lens upgrade..

Btw thank for the advices and opinions
