Re: My new D5200 - Serious backfocus problem

I agree, its really unbelievable that a brand new Camera should have such a defekt. Bring it back, I would not waste my time with it, the defekt looks obvious enough to me from your description.

I was thinking of giving my D5100 back and getting the D5200 instead, but after hearing of these problems the question is settled, I 'm keeping my D5100, it focuses perfekt. Along with the high-iso uncertainty's of the 24mp sensor of the d5200 its a too high-risk of a proposition for me at this time.

Maybe I will pick up a cheap D7000 later this year as a second body, at least it supports legacy lenses and has AF fine tuning.
