#12. "RE: Nikon D3200 focus - Viewfinder vs Live View" In response to In response to 0 Thu 04-Jul-13 02:29 AM by adams03
I'm having similar issues. I've noticed that the AF of the view finder will slightly backfocus, while the live view will consistently provide accurate and sharp focus. In all pictures, I was focusing on the middle "K" in "KIRKLAND". I acknowledge that the exact same exposure settings were not used on both...I can reproduce the pictures if this is an issue.

If I'm not zooming completely in, this is hardly noticeable, and perhaps I am making a big deal out of this. But if this is something that can be fixed, or that could be corrected by Nikon if I sent in my lens/camera, I'd appreciate knowing. Too bad the D3200 doesn't have any AF microadjustment options.
