Nikon 28-300mm - Front focus far distance/infinity?
Feb 11, 2013

I recently tried out a Nikon 28-300mm and had an issue in that had trouble focusing at infinity when using the AF on my D600... Let's say I'm shooting f/4 at 28mm with a subject 50-100 feet away.... it would front focus by 20 feet!  If I tried live view it would focus perfectly.

I'm wondering if I just got a bad copy or if many of the 28-300mm's show this 'issue'?

Thanks.
