    There you go, thanks for the image. Your ISO is 11.404. That is way too much. I suspect your ISO was set to Auto incidentally. You need to get your ISO to 100 or 200 for daylight shots to get the best out of your images. But that means that you have to change the other settings too, otherwise you would end up totally underexposed. You may want to read a bit about the exposure triangle - or maybe I can convince you to watch my free youtube course: PHOTO1x1 Free Photography Course

    If the camera was set to "auto ISO", then the camera will adjust it to whatever value is required to produce a viewable image.

    Do you have a specific reason why you think your current camera is not enough for you?

    You will have similar problems with better cameras, though they are better at higher ISOs.
    But until you learn more about the exposure traingle and how to improve your selections you'll still have image issues.

    info about AUTO ISO from your manual.

    I´d keep it for he moment and experiment as much as I can. Once you have the feeling you miss something specific, you are ready to think about upgrading. But before that shoot, shoot, shoot. Regarding lenses - that depends a lot on what you are trying to photograph. The ones you mentioned are very different - are you considering either or, or both?

    Although there many who recommend manual for learning, I think most of the time it's much better to use one of the semi auto modes & just set the parameter that is most important to your shot.
    For these sort of shots I'd be inclined to use Av mode setting the aperture for the DOF you want. Then leave the camera to sort out the right speed to go with that. This should allow the exposures to be acceptable without needing high ISO, and will also limit the amount you have to learn to get good shots.

    I probably work in Av 80% of the time, switching to Tv (time value or shutter priority) when shutter speed is more critical than DOF. Manual only gets used when I need full control, or light levels are too dark for the cameras meter.

    Getting the camera focused where you want may be another part of the problem if the images are soft as well as grainy.

    Grain is a result of high ISO. Go out tomorrow with your camera and use an ISO of 100 - you´ll be happy, promised. Use petrochemists recommendation of Av to not underexpose your shot.

    Use the Aperture Priority as mentioned above - Av and Tv is Canon terms for Aperture Priority and Shutter (Time) Priority.

    Bascially, the Shutter 1/2000 is way more than you need for a landscape. 1/125 is plenty enough (and lower too). That is 4 stops slower. And your camera (which is in AUTO ISO as it starts out at 100, then changes for the image, then shows you 100 at the end) would lower by 4 stops, from ISO 11,404 to about 1,425.

    The high ISO will add grain or fuzziness and lack of detail. Which is what you are trying to avoid.

    So just lowering your shutter speed to something more normal is going the help **immensely**.

    have you always had this problem with the camera? Try finding a lens at a store or see if a friend has one you can borrow, take some photos with the new lens and compare them with the photos you took with your lens. if the new lens photos are clear than you have a lens problem, if they are still blurry you might have a camera problem. do you hear any noise when you adjust the lens? dose the shot look clear when you look through the view port?
