At six grand a whack, there should be no such thing as a bad copy. I was flexible with Nikon when I bought a F4 way back when, and cut them a lot of slack on the then brand new AF system, but now it should be perfect right out of the box, especially considering the cost. I see little improvement in the files, and the AF is disappointing to say the very least. I have been a die hard Nikon user since 1979, but this camera is truly testing my devotion. And I doing something wrong? I don't know what it could be, I've tried static test, real world tests, I don't know what else to do. Maybe it's something else, but the image should be stellar at 70mm 1/1250 f5.6 ISO 200.
It could just of had bad calibration. Stuff happens. The camera is just a tool. Doesn't matter how much money you spent on it. I've seen $130,000 torque converters break the first time they were used.
Anywho, send it to calibration, get it fixed, enjoy your camera.
I am not dissing you BenV, but,
That camera must be factory QC'ed. PERIOD! I would not accept a "calibrate". I like Adorama (a box came from them yesterday), but, they would loose this sale.
For that much jingle, the camera IS perfect, If not, I wait for the next model.
If I am willing to drop 6G's to go from a D3 to a D4, Nikon MUST make me happy the first time.
If "repaired" camera's are accepted as new, we as customers will never win.
A 6G order is significant, let 100 people return them, Nikon will notice. Let 1,000 people return them, they will question doing that ever again. This is not a pro-sumer, high production camera. Heck, some lenses have only had 750 copies made.
Honda and Toyota figured that out long ago.
