What an indictment though ...

I shoot a lot of drag racing (AF-C) and was having the same problem with mine and my 80-200AFS.  Unfortunately, the fix was to send it off to Nikon for calibration.  However, my keeper rate increased significantly and the shots I'm getting now are beautiful right out of the camera.

I hope this helps some.

Well, good. Glad your kit is OK now.

One understands that there is such a thing as manufacuring tolerances on both lenses and bodies which can be cumulative and lead to an impaired final combination. What an indictment though to spend this much money on camera and lens(es) and then still find one or both have to go back to Nikon to give them a second go to get it right.

Happily, all my lenses be they Nikon or be they Sigma or Tamron, including the oh-so-expensive 300/F4 have worked perfectly straight out of the box on my D70, D300 and ancient 501 film SLR, all without any kind of tinkering.
