Well I gave the (new to me) D2x a workout at a dog agility show today and gave the D2h a rest. I just looked at the pictures and they seem a bit soft compared to what I was getting from the D2h. I was using both regular and HSC modes. Does the D2x, in HSC mode, become more suceptible to vibrations? I always use a monopod with the D2h and did the same with the D2x. If I don't need the 8fps, would I be better off shooting regular (12.4MP mode) and then cropping the images? Any input would be helpful.
