#4. "RE: Manual lenses having focus issues on my D700" In response to In response to 3
The thing is, it has got to widely off from the buck, considering how out of focus the berm at the bottom is, compared to the treeline and hillside in the distance. Now granted, f4 on the 85mm gives a narrow DoF, but it appears that the distant objects are more in focus than where I was visually seeing the viewable DoF of the lens while shooting. It's as if to a certain distance, the DoF at f4 was working, and then suddenly the "other side" of the DoF simply ceased to follow the laws of physics. That is of course on top of the fact that the viewable focus plane ended up being nowhere near where the camera translated it into.
