D3100 kit lens focus frame shifting problem?? Weirdness.
Apr 28, 2011

Just purchased the 3100 today. Attached the kit lens. Walked around the house to take some test shots.

When I lock focus, the image in the viewfinder shifts up slightly. Hold the focus, fire the shot and the image shifts back down. This seems like a little defect to me. It throws off ones framing..even if just a tad. I've never seen this kind of behavior on any camera/lens before.

I'm gonna call the shop up and inquire about an exchange but am wondering if anyone has encountered this and could confirm that this is a defective piece or normal behavior for this lens.

Thanks in advance!

Ron
