Nikon 85 f/1.4 AFD needing AF fine tuning on D700

Hi there to all,

Just got myself a 85 f/1.4 in mint condition as I wanted to use this lens with an outstanding reputation for weddings. Now am I the only person who is shocked that this lens will need fine tuning to be sharp at working distance?

My 50 mm f/1.4, 28-70 f/2.8 and 80-200 f/2.8 are all TACK sharp at any distance shooting wide (1.8 or 2.8).

I am pretty annoyed. Does this mean I have a bad copy or are other experiencing the same?

Talk soon,
Drew
