Re: My D800 after Nikon service shows great AFA diviation

I think I wasn't clear enough.

Obviously they will calibrate the lenses to the body. No surprises there.

The real surprise is that after the body arrived from service, my other lenses who usually had anything between -5 to +5 AFA value, are now having +15 and +20. Meaning that I suspect the body fix was in such a manner that threw my other lenses way up in the AFA value.

As you know, when a lens that used to be +3 and now showing +15 all of a sudden without really using it at all, means that every lens I might mount on my D800 will show a great amount of back focus which will need to be adjusted by +15 or +20.

Also, the 50mm need way above +20 while before the body fix it was on 0 AFA!

So I'll repeat myself; I don't expect to have my lenses perfectly calibrated if they were not serviced BUT I also don't expect them to show +20 all of a sudden.
