I first noticed this problem when using my Tammy 150-600mm lens on my Nikon D700. At first I thought it was the lens causing the photos to not be sharp. But I put the lens on my Nikon D850 had very sharp photos. So it was not the lens but the camera. It did not matter if I used manual or auto focus. Have any of you had a similar problem? Please let me know.

D700 was well known for AF probs caused by dust bunnies. Rocket blower to the AF Sensor Slits will probably take care of it. (y)
Good suggestion. I certainly will try that. Be cheaper that the $238 Nikon wants to fix it. Here are some photos that show the problem.
