D600 with 24-70 right focus issue
May 10, 2014

I took some portrait shots the other day and was disappointed at how soft they were, so I did some investigation, this revealed a soft focus issue when focusing using the far right focus point (see image).

Comparison of left, centre and right points.

Naturally I'll be contacting Nikon service (whom I've had fantastic response from with regard to the oil/dust issue).

I find it particularly annoying having the right focus point faulty, it means I'll have to focus/recompose all the time when shooting in portrait orientation.

Test shots were on a tripod with focus chart stuck to wall, using pan head to use alternate focus points.

ISO 400, 1/80th second, F 2.8.

Any comments regarding the validity of my tests etc are welcome.
