50mm 1.4/G front focus problem on D300?
May 26, 2009

I just got a 50mm 1.4/G this week, and it's showing massive front focus on my D300. (Like about 8ft difference at a distance of 30ft.) Has anyone else experienced this problem?

What do people recommend doing in this case?

1) Return to vendor & ask for exchange
2) Send to Nikon for adjustment
3) Use the D300's focus adjustment & make it work

Thanks for any help,
Mike
