How do I set my Auto Focus for a Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX Nikkor to my nikon d7000 for sharp pictures? I never liked this lens. I bought it when I bought my nikon D5000 3 years ago. I just upgraded to a D7000.
No matter what I try I do not get a crisp sharp picture. There always seem to be soft. I have tried setting it to -2 -5 -10-15 and even tried -20 for my AF fine tune. I just can't fine the setting I need to take great shots.
I live in Alaska. I take a lot of pictures of eagles. The eagles are moving and or flying a lot also. This lens is slow for that also.
What would be a good lens for fast moving wild life that are at a distance?
Thank you for your help in advance.
Here are a couple on samples on photo bucket. I am not allow yet to post pictures. Not till I have had 10 post.
Here is a moose picture from this summer. I was using the same lens but a d5000. It is not a sharp picture. The baby is out of focus. The mom could look better. http://i1267.photobucket.com/albums/jj557/speedyautohits/DSC_0139_zps93d22a13.jpg
