I bought two weeks ago a Nikon 8800. What I have noticed is that it cannot focus on objects that I have zoomed inand are let say 5-6 meters away. When I zoom out the clarity of the picture increases. On maximum zoom the sharpness is OK, and the VR works fine. Unfortunately I have taken few pictures today at maximum resolution and cannot post them for you to have a look at, as the files arelarger than the limitand point out what is wrong either with the camera settings or with me.
Tomorrow I shall drop the resolution and will post some pictures.
Appart from that it takes great pictures. I am pleased with the purchase of the camera.
All comments are welcomed.
