no, I doubt nikon would be doing any adjustments for free and if you send it in for servicing you may find it takes a long time since that is a discontinued product and they may need to order parts from overseas.

That said, the D70 is a great camera and its what I started with. I never had any back focusing issues, so maybe the one you had before was a lemon and you might find one without any issues. You should definitely make sure it doesn't have too many shutter clicks tho and that may be difficult.

You could even get a used 85mm 1.8D lens rather than the G-type, because I think the main differences are the focus motor and quieter operation for video, neither of which are relevant to the D70.

Thanks for your help.
