Re: Refund/Replacement/Refurbished . . .

I have had my D800 since last April and it has been back to Nikon UK once last May. When I got it back I rechecked all my lenses with Focal and now the AF fine tune is in the plus range.

At the Focus show last Monday I bought the Nikon 50mm 1.8 G lens. Tried it out - not happy. Calibrated the lens in Focal and gives me +16. Redid the test and now goes off scale, unable to focus with it.

I have returned the lens to Calumet and they will have a look. My argument with Nikon is that in the manual it states than you should never need to adjust fine tune to anything other than zero.
