Question about Nikon D200 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
I'm having trouble getting sharp images on my D200. I have a Nikkor 24-85 mm lens as well as a Nikkor 28-80mm. The focus is better when used with the 28-80mm lens. I use the exact same lenses on my D100 and the images are very sharp compared to the D200. I also get that I'll be focused on something but when I checkt the picture the focus shifted to the background.
Could you possibly assist me in fixing this problem. Thanks you
Hi Amanda, welcome to FixYa.
Try this to fix your focusing issue. It's a custom AF setting.
Press the Menu and select the pencil icon. Then you'll see Custom Setting Menu on the LCD display. Click down to Autofocus and then click to the right.
There are 3 choices here: FPS Rate, FPS Rate + AF, and Focus.
Set it to Focus.
FPS Rate is the default setting, the camera will take 5 frames per second whether it's in focus or not.
FPS Rate+ AF forces it to slow down hoping to get more frames in focus.
Focus sets the camera to fire only when in perfect focus. It slows you down some, but it will save you from deleting all the blurry ones.
Try this and let me know if it works for you with a comment.
