| p.1 #9 · those with D800 left focusing issues get a packing box ready |
thought i would update others who had installed the latest firmware. my nikon d800e was adjusted last year by nikon tech support singapore, even tho its a USA camera. they did an excellent job and corrected the issue. i returned to the US, shot for months, then returned to asia, did a firmware update, and guess what...my fears...the update returned the left focus to be off...not as bad as the first bout...but interesting. will be taking it back again. anyone else experience this issue?
I think I might have saw you picking up your camera between September - October timeframe at about 2-3 pm in the afternoon when I was testing a couple of demo lenses at Nikon Singapore. How often do one meet a person bringing in a US camera for adjustment in Singapore? Chances are very slim.
For your info, one would need to double check the AF fine tuning if you have any other setting than 0. That is because they have modified the AF s/w to improve 3D tracking which in-directly affects the movement and speed of the motor or braking power. Will expect very little re-adjustment like +/- 1 or 2 that it.
I had mine updated the day after it was officially released and do not need any adjustment accept one, from +1 (actually it was +0.5 but the setting is in steps of 1) to 0.
Yes, I do agreed that this thread is very old and should have a new thread instead.
Note: By the way this has nothing to do with left focusing issue, but more to AF fine tuning.
