    Shot a wedding on saturday with my usual kit of d200 plus variety of lenses. Noticed about halfway through that the images were looking a bit soft when using my sigma 28-70 f2.8 ex.
    Never had this before, in fact the lens has been so good i've never bothered thinking of changing it to a nikkor.
    i'm wondering if the weather had anything to do with it. It started off raining heavily, when the bride arrived at church the sun came out and it got very humid. I did change lenses in the church as i needed a wideangle and am wondering if the sensor got a bit misted up with the change in weather.
    Would appreciate any comments ( apart from the ones telling me to change to canon - it'll never happen) before i send my kit off for a service.

    So did the shots look soft or misty? If soft then it is possible you were using the lens outside its comfort zone because of the light.

    If your camera gear had been kept in warm dry conditions and then taken out into cold wet it is possible that it could have misted up but I'm pretty sure you would have noticed that on the lens before it got onto the sensor.

    Misty is how they looked but it didn't show on the lens or looking through it which is why i thought it might be on the sensor. Am going to do some test shots today to see if it happens again.
