Re: Start by testing correctly

I have purchased a D71000 yesterday and immediately tested it for this issue. I have discovered that my camera definitively has some issues with focus points left of from the center. I couldn't quite confirmed that left focus points have back or front focus, but I just couldn't get images with the same sharpness as they were taken by center or right points. I photographed over and over again the same pattern with different focus points and the ones taken with the left points were always softer.

Wo what do you thing is the only way to go just returning the camera and try a new one or send it to service? Is this problem with left focus points a matter of calibration or hardware fault?

You should first ensure you test correctly. And post pictures of your tests. At the moment, it could be as simple as using shutter priority instead of focus priority. You used a steady surface, good light and a fast aperture right? What lens did you test with?

Based on what you provided above, I don't believe that you know what you are doing.
