Re: no .. a quick update

first, in terms of IQ, i found with a fully calibrated TC14E, i had to adjust the the AFMA for the 80~400mm AF-S to +20 or so for best imaging.

i sent in my D800E with 80-400mm AF-S G + TC14E to test my cameras AF sensors, and it was determined that they were not aligned correctly at the factory. they fixed this, and now VR is consistent throughout the zoom range, and AF chatter (the attempt to find focus and hold it) has been eliminated.

so the issues i discussed earlier seem not at all to be lens related, but in my case AF sensor related.
