Upload & Sell: Off
I have recently bought a 14-24 from Calumet/London but I had to return it as it was back focusing a lot, lens was literally unusable. Even the guys from the shop were convinced the lens was not sharp at all.
Same day I ordered another one from Amazon and guess what...same issue. However, this copy seems better, the issue is visible more when shooting in 14mm, but still, I will have no choice than to return this one as well.
Even with AF fine tuned all way to -20 lens is still not sharp.
I have tried both lenses on my D3s and D600 and results were the same.
I own other Nikon lenses 24-70, 70-200 and I have quite few weddings under my belt so I would say I know what to expect from this lens. None of my other lenses required any AF fine tune adjustments whatsoever.
I wouldn't feel comfortable sending all my kit to Nikon for calibration just for this lens...I lived so far without it so it won't be a real problem not having it in my bag...
Am I so unlucky?
