Digitalloyd, Thom Hogan & Ken Rockwell all seem to agree and say Nikon newest cams have an AF issue. That surely cannot be.

Reading the Nikon forums, they just keep on living in this imaginary bubble that user error is the reason for these results. LOL

PLEASE! Wake up an admit there is a problem affecting a higher percentage of these unit than we all think, as I say, a great camera concept, badly imlemented.

Canon really seems to have pulled up their socks and taken their old AF crown back from the Nikon camp! Competition brings the best out of each and the consumer ends up being the winner, eventually!

The lessons here are clear, never by a camera body just after its been released, wait at least 6 months.
