Not my discovery, i heard it from others too. With the assumption that this "phenomenon" is new for Nikon, my theory would be, that they updated the hardware of the AF unit for better low light sensitivity, but with a sneaky sideeffect: (more) variability in color temperature response.

Yeah me too. I don't really care, I just want them to issue a firmware fix so I can use the 1.4 apertures on my lenses on faces!
