D7001 left focus not sharp issue. Returning 2nd D7001 for 3rd D7001.
Apr 5, 2013


Just received my replacement copy after 1st copy had 5 oil spots on sensor. Rocket blower, built in camera sensor feature did not remove oil/dust on sensor. Decided to return rather than do wet clean. Visible at f/16.

My replacement camera now has L focus point issue. Not as sharp 100% compared to center, up, down, right focus points wide open. Rather blurry image. Used my 24-70, f/2.8 Nikon lens on tripod using high contrast focus chart with good outdoor lighting.

Has anyone else experienced this L focus problem with their D7001? I hope this is an isolated problem. I'm disappointed with my new camera.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
