  • D800E focusing issue?

    Hi Guys,

    Sold my 35mm 1.4G to one of my friends who is using D800E.

    I have been using that lens on D700, Df and D800E for the last 2 years and did not seem to have any issues with the focusing, nor it does require any AF fine-tune. Its sharp even wide open at f1.4.

    But my friend who just bought the lens from me has got some focusing issue with the lens. He tried a couple of shots at 1.4 and its not sharp at all. the image is a little blurry and glowy (according to him). With an AF fine tune of +2, the problem seems to go away.

    Now my friend of this has got the same focusing issue with his 85mm 1.8g, but his 24-70 and 14-24 works fine with the body. I'm just wondering if that would be his camera problem focusing with primes or is it really my lens problem?

    Any idea to share?

    Take the camera and the lens to Nikon Service Centre, they can fix the problem.

      I have the same issue on my 24-70 and 14-24 with D800E but none on my D700. I send them to Nikon SC and done with it. It's not expensive but takes a couple of days to get back the camera.

        So can i say this is the camera problem and not really the lens?
