Re: D800 Left AF UK repair experience

Hi all,

Thanks for your useful comments on my ongoing problem they're most helpful.  I arranged today that Nikon take a further look at the camera.  I've supplied them with a comprehensive set of NEF files showing live view and viewfinder focus on the left, centre and right AF points. All images taken on a tripod against a flat wall with charts containing a variety of lines to focus on.  I have also demonstrated the problem on two separate lenses i.e. it isn't down to a lens flaw.  The live view AF on left, right and centre works fine.  The viewfinder AF on centre and right work fine but all shots with the left viewfinder AF sensor were out of focus.  Here's an example of the same shot taken with the live view sensor and then the viewfinder AF left most sensor.  They were converted to jpeg on a 100% view.

Live view left sensor 14mm at f2.8

Viewfinder far left AF sensor 14mm at f2.8
