Lock posted the correct reason for the issue. A small number of D7000's suffered from this as well. It is caused by minor differences in the angle of the secondary AF sub-mirror. The return invoices I have seen showed that is what they adjusted and it's been reported that it fixed the issue in those cases. There were a few cases of it only happening with the 35 f1.8g lens so I suspect it was a combination of factors in those samples. Document it well with pictures and Nikon service should be able to easily adjust it...getting them to is always hit or miss depending on who you get ion the phone.  good luck.
