The 1 reader comment about Thom’s books? I just had my D repaired by Nikon to fix a back focusing problem. It took me a year and 25, shots to notice that there was definitely a camera fault. I had read plenty of chatter online about the D back focusing problem so I was inclined to gukde that my fuzzy photos were due to user error.

Most of my shots during that period were landscapes and I was able to dial focus in hhom deliberately. Only recently had I started shooting d700 kids playing rugby and soccer.

Then the problem became very obvious. I was shooting with the VR wide open which is far less forgiving than the above two midrange zooms. It may be the case that the AF problem was more obvious because I was shooting dynamic subjects, that is, a combination of back focus errors completee focus tracking errors.

On my test shots with static subjects I was still finding consistent back focus errors but not to the same degree as with dynamic compllete. A test rig for repeatable dynamic test shots is beyond my means. I shipped the body to Nikon after they agreed that my test shots showed an AF problem. It was a week out of warranty so I wrote a letter pleading my case.

Fortunately they covered the repair and return shipping at no charge. The whole process took 5 weeks. Of that 1 week was for shipping to Nikon and back to me.


I was told that the body was being thoroughly tested prior to shipping. I had a repair code B2 moderate repair, major parts replaced. The body serial number is xxx. My D is back in my hands and delivered fantastic results last weekend at my sons rugby match. I had thought of selling it. And that D50 just blew me away. It can take fantastic shots.
