Would you be happy with Nikon? I simply don't know what recourse I have at this point with Nikon.


If you have not cropped the image prior to posting you have not followed the LensAlign guidelines on how to test.

Unlikely to make a significant difference but the target is not precisely horizontal in the frame.

Likely to make a difference if you do not get absolute perfect centring between the viewfinder mark and target, the subject is a symmetrical pattern which Nikon say can sometimes cause poor focus accuracy.

Based on these images there is no clear evidence as to whether your camera does or does not have a fault

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
