Re: Still not happy with the D850 AF

I had an issue a while back where i though it may have been a decentered lens as it was soft on one side of the frame... once i got a few more lenses i noticed it still there and much more noticeable on my 2.8 zooms.

Turned out to be my front body until was even so slightly bent which put the lens to sensor alignment out. with lenses stopped down a bit and not being too critical of an image you would have not picked it up.

Front body unit replaced and it's so good now.

Speaking to the repair guys and they reckon they do that job about once a week (on all camera's and brand's), and it's surprisingly easy to knock out of whack.
