Hi Dominique

Thanks. Yes, I think some lenses I have suffer from (a mild) front focusing.

However the 14-24 and also the 35mm f/2D look very soft, but it is not consistent.

So I cannot state it is camera or user error. Will do some more testing with it.
I got some request to post some samples, which I did on my flikr account.

Try the lens on another camera. I first thought I also had the problem with the 14-24, in the end it was backfocus. It used to be good before, likely at some time, something happened with the lens. It gave the same bad results on my D3s. Never noticed it, since I hardly use this lens wide open - if ever.
