It seems as if it's suffering from better AF performance! :eek:

Maybe not. Could just be a placebo effect kind of thing. I like the shot anyways.

Francis,
Nice image.
I have been wondering whether the firmware update was worth the bother. Do you really think the firmware improved your AF?

I tend to think firmware upgrades do more harm than good. They scare me! I am that way.

Your image looks great!

I feel as if it has. Though, I haven't performed any proper tests. It appears to not hunt as much.

Great image....pin sharp and good composition.
As for auto-focus, focus should be the same.....it's AF speed that may improve. The D3 owners are reporting better AF speed with the new firmware.

Great job Francis :) Was that a handheld shot? The sharpness is amazing!
Yes, Sir, it sure was. Handheld while crouched down facing upwards. I am sure I looked really awkward to people passing by :wink:
