tungsten light backfocusing problem with D7000 + 35mm 1.8G
Jan 4, 2012

OK, I've read some more old threads and I'm even more convinced that all D7000s have a serious AF flaw with tungsten light and certain lenses, 35mm 1.8G being one of the worst.

What I'd like to ask other forum members here:

Q: Is there ANY D7000 + 35mm 1.8G owners out there who do NOT have substantial backfocusing problem under tungsten light? I have seen none so far.

Q: Is there ANY D7000 + 35mm 1.8G owners out there who did have this problem but got it fixed properly by Nikon? I have seen none so far. But I did see some people who got their unit back from Nikon who "fixed" the backfocusing under tungsten light but with a new severe front focusing problem in daylight, which is what I fear might happen if I send in my unit.

Q: I do think it's a lens dependent problem. Is there a good substitute lens for 35mm 1.8G that is confirmed to work well with D7000 under all lighting conditions?

What I am NOT interested in hearing:

  • "My 35mm 1.8G seems to work fine for me! (But I haven't really tested it properly under tungsten light with large aperture.)"

  • "User error! There's no way my dear Nikon would screw up that bad."

  • "Post some pictures so we can confirm your issue."

I know this topic has been discussed many times but I just want to confirm my findings before deciding on my next course of action. Thank you.
