AF problem with the Nikon 50mm f/1.4G Lens and the D800
Jul 26, 2012

This is the second Nikon Lens 50mm f/1.4G that I have tested with my camera, both brand new from B&H Photo store (previous one was exchanged as defective) and it's impossible to get a single picture in focus.

Please find attached 4 examples, the first one is with Live View very sharp and spot on, then next 3 pictures are using the Center, Right and Left AF point, where none of them is in focus and the Left one is the worse. I would have expected that the Center AF point would have been fine, I've done the same test with the Nikon lenes 28-300, 85 f/1.8 and 105 f/2.8 Macro and with all those 3 lenses the Center AF point is good, not as good as LV but OK, and of course the Left AF point very bad, as expected.

I've tried AF Fine tune from -20 to +20 and no difference, exactly the same. Please advice what I should do, thanks
