My photos appear to be .... not as sharp as I expect them to be. It could be my non-existent technique, but I had no such issues with my old Camera, a Fuji Finepix S5500. Maybe the Fuji was just more forgiving. Or maybe I'm not using the right settings. Or maybe it is just my shaky hands ... or my imagination. Please if you have a few moments could you look over the 5 sample photos I have taken with my brand new D3000. I left all the EXIF info in there so that you can see the settings I used too. This is all taken with the Kit 18-55 VR lens. P.S. Please excuse the terrible thumbnails!
