D3200 Back Focus Fix
Jun 10, 2012

My new D3200 had a bad back focus issue right out of the box with the kit lens and my other Nikon glass. I bought it as a lightweight backup for an upcoming hiking trip. No time to send it back, so a search turned up a fix: http://leongoodman.tripod.com/d70focusnew.html .

I gave Leon's approach a try and it worked very well! See my results at http://afpphoto.com/blog/ .

The fix consists of adjusting a couple of mirror stops using an allen wrench, following the procedure at Leon's site. (Use the "Mirror Lockup for Cleaning" function). Now all of my Nikon lenses focus properly and I can use the D3200 as intended. This should work for any of Nikon's bodies that don't have a fine focus tuning function. Just be careful of the sensor!
