D800 Marching Focal Point, Normal? Feature?
Jan 28, 2013

Hi Guys,

Would like to run something by the group.  My D800 will, from time to time, start to march the (single) focal point across the view finder right to left, then wrap around (I have focal wrapping turned on).  The point will wrap three of four times then stop where it started.  I've seen this behavior in both S and C modes and only when single focal point is selected.

Yes, I'm guessing this is not normal as it's kind of a pain in the butt.  Curious if others have seen this.  The camera is due for a trip to service to resolve validated left focus issue.  I'm going to have them look at this behavior as well.

Thanks for your comments in advance,


Nikon D800
