    Print out a focus test chart and test. It will tell you a lot about a lens. If there is an issue, you can submit these to Nikon when you send it in.

    I use the 18-140 mm as my walk around lens. When I first started shooting it, the images didn't look quite up to par, but when I run them through DXO Optics Pro lens/camera correction, they look great. This would seem to indicate there is something in the design of the lens that is causing the problem, but I haven't heard a lot of complaints about the sharpness of this lens compared to comparable lenses.

    Change your focus settings to single-point.

    this photo is made with the same lens/camera. It seems a lot sharper.
    So maybe it is not the lens, but the person behind the shutter release button...
    I can send it to Nikon, but want to make sure it is really the lens, before I do so
