New owner needs advice on back focus posibility

Hi all,

At last, I took the plunge and have ordered a D70 :-D!

It's refurbished (£679 body only, eBay), so one thing iIm going to be checking straight away is the possibility of the dreaded, yet rare, Back Focus. Suddenly I realised though, I never really saw evidence either way of whether this was a kit lens issue, or a D70 issue...?

Did this question ever get to an answer? Or was it a bit of both? If it's a kit lens thing, I'm safe! If it's a D70 thing, I'm nervous still....

Any knowledge appreciated.....

Thank you in advance, I look forward to taking a week off work and hopefully coming back here with some great pictures to show for it!
