No longer a newbie, moving up!
Trying to figure out whats going on, I just returned a Nikon cool pix l820 point and shoot that I had for one week for a Nikon d3100, even when in auto mode, vr on and auto focus the d3100 pictures are not in focus and not sharp. The coolpix l820 pictures were very sharp and in focus. Searched the internet and cant find anything directly related to this. could the lens ( nikkor 18-55 VR) be lesser quality to the point and shoot lens
