    Each of the 3 watches on the right - can go in the watchband - the pronged holder opens from the back - and you place a different pocket watch in.I find only thinner size 45mm-47mm pocket watches work best - most of mine are too big,heavy and thick.

    You need to check each lens, the camera will remember the different lenses.

    Your photos are looking good now Larry.

    How I understand it is, if you try to load them too big, too many kB, or too many pixels, the forum resizes them to a smaller size, and it does a poor job of it. Best to size them yourself, I find mine look good if I keep them under 250 kB and 1000 pixels on the long edge of the photo.

    Even if you own 2 identical lenses, they each need to be calibrated individually (the body should be able to tell which is which when mounted). And as mentioned, your pics look fine now!

    I have a few questions in order to try solving your IQ quest.

    Are you using a tripod for your shots? As I look at your exif, it seems to me that your shutter speeds are on the slow side. If hand held, this could lead to a great loss of sharpness.

    In the case of the watches, if you would have used a tripod, you could have focuses using Live View, magnifying the screen while in LV and then manually focus exactly where you wanted the focus to be.

    If you are shooting hand held, try to use the Quiet shutter mode. I did some experiments earlier when I had the D7000 and found that using the quiet mode gave me consistently better sharpness than the single shutter mode. It seems the D7000 had a case of mirror slap (camping the mirror stop in the up position) that caused this.

    Good luck and keep trying. I'm certain you can get great results with the D7000.
