comment Camera producing blurred images under average lighting conditions
@Evan that sounds very convincing, thanks very much for the link. I'm astounded that my memory would play such tricks on me, but it is possible. If you'd post that as an answer, I'd be inclined to accept it

@John @Maynard thanks. :) I will experiment with the shutter speeds and a tripod to find out whether there is a problem. I did have the feeling that the behaviour has changed, and the camera seems to be much more sensitive to this (in auto mode) than it used to be. I'll look into it, and come back with an update here. @mattdm done, good point

@John sorry, my photography vocabulary is very poor. I meant "Landscapes" as opposed to close-ups, i.e. objects far away. I'm sure there is a more correct word for it.

Arggh! Oh man, you are right. My apologies, the Exif confirms it. I somehow didn't notice or misremembered when taking the picture. Would it, however, be normal for the shake to occur with landscapes as well? I'll see whether I can find a more telling landscape example later.

I put the images into external links because they need to be huge so one can see the problem; if it's okay/customary to put these directly into the question on Photography.SE anyway, let me know.
