| p.1 #3 · D800 AF repair: What repair was done, and what results? |
Now that we have a steady stream of repairs coming back, it might be useful to track what Nikon did, where they did it, what were the results, and how many trips back in did it take. So far, satisfactory results seem to be hit or miss, so perhaps we can find some pattern by examining what Nikon is doing.
Mine just returned from its first trip to Melville, NY. Classified as a B1 repair, invoice says SC 201759.
Result: Left AF issues seems resolved. However, camera body appears to have a significant FF, requiring +20 on a perfect 70-200 II VR that required no fine tuning on my D700, or the D800 pre-repair. It is now not tack sharp, as it had been on the D800 pre-repair. Two new lenses, the 85 and 50 1.8 G's, required no tuning on the D700 or D800 pre-repair, now need +12 and +15. A 24-70, which has been a problem lens, now needs +12, and has also been serviced.
Next steps and Nikon CS: Proving to be useless. It is clear from an email exchange that they are unable to answer or escalate beyond their off-shore call center. Responses to requests are canned and unrelated to requests.
Mine came back with almost same result as yours. I sent it back again since I don't have time nor believe in AF adjustment. It came back the second time a lot better. All my lenses work now except my 50/1.8g which maybe front focusing a little. I only see it on wide open shots so I am not worried.
