D800E finally back from Nikon. Has Focus Issues now
Apr 10, 2013

Sent my D800E to Nikon for the, what I would call minor, left focus issue. While my camera was at Nikon being repaired, the new firmware came out. I was upset reading that the firmware update seemed to fix many of the focus issues. I should have waited and simply updated the firmware. Nikon in fact made an adjustment which made the images on the outer focus points sharper, but now the center focus points are out of focus. Tested on a 50 1.4 G and 85 1.8 G. Repair took more than 2 weeks. They in fact updated the firmware as well, but it's not helping. I don't understand why they would adjust it just for the outer points, leaving the central points off. Very upset - long time Nikon shooter ...
