The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
I am having problems with my 24-70 VR on my D850.
I bought the lens two months ago and when I tried it, I had a lot of trouble achieving good focus.
So I set up my spyder lens cal and tested the heck out of the lens. AF-S, camera steady on the ground, VR off, camera sensor parallel to the target.
It showed a massive front focus close up at 24mm and a back focus at 70mm.It evened out a bit the further I moved the camera away from the target.
I ended up fine tuning the lens to +13, used it on a shoot and it was good, but only as long as made sure to be at least 4 feet away from my subjects, and to be carful, I stepped down to about 4.0
I ended up send ing the lens to Nikon, they had it for a bout 3 weeks and just got it back two days ago. They replaced a part on the brand new lens and wrote in the service order that they restored it to good working order.
Fast forward to me trying the lens again- pretty much the same issue. It is dialed in to +6 AF fine tune now. But the lens is still unusable close up, as the focus is still not where it is supposed to be. Still FF at 24 mm.
So if I adjust for the FF at 24 mm, the lens will produce a back focus from about 50-70mm.
Now- I understand that zoom lenses cannot be perfect at every distance. But from a lens at that price point, I do expect more.
What is your experience with this? I want to call Nikon again today and talk with them about how realistic it is to get this lens to be more consistent. I will also try it on my D4 today to see if the focusing issues are less visible on a camera with less MP.
I know my D850 is working fine. It performs flawlessly with my 35 Art, 85 Art and my Nikkor 70-200 FL.
My 105 Micro isn't working great with my D850 either, it achieves a very inconsistent front- and back focus at different distances. But the 105 works good enough on my D4 to use it.

When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
The Movie Maker is a compact, motorized slider designed for phones, action cams and small mirrorless cameras. We think it's a fun little kit and a good value proposition for the cost, provided you can work around a few of its weak points.
