Re: D3200 Back Focus Fix

Thanks for the warning, but I (and everyone else) would just LOVE to return a camera that's 3 yrs old!! Lol. Anyway, I'm really disappointed with Nikon service as they found nothing wrong with it.

Hi Al

Could you tell me if you had to adjust the AF mirror stop Clockwise or Counter-Clockwise to resolve your back focus issue? I'd like to know prior to attempting this fix on a D90.

The fix consists of adjusting a couple of mirror stops using an allen wrench, following the procedure at Leon's site. (Use the "Mirror Lockup for Cleaning" function). Now all of my Nikon lenses focus properly and I can use the D3200 as intended. This should work for any of Nikon's bodies that don't have a fine focus tuning function. Just be careful of the sensor!


Don't do it. It is not a proper fix for a misaligned or miss-calibrated AF module and will result in inconsistent AF. Send it in to Nikon Service, or return for another camera.
