#11. "RE: D7000 Outer Focus Points Soft...."
In response to In response to 10


St Petersburg, RU
          

I ran into a sudden problem with my D7000 during an event. About 500 shots into it, suddenly my lenses at less than about 45mm were out of focus and every focal length longer was fine. I did not have time to investigate until the next day so I finished up with my 85 1.4 and 70-200. Checking it out, my 24 1.4, 17-55 2.8 and 35 1.8 all performed badly. I was going to California in a few days so took it to Precision Service in Sacramento and they adjusted the AF to be as good as new. No parts were required. It occurred at about the 20,000 shot count. That was last spring and it has been flawless since.
I mention this only because of the shorter fl selective misalignment. The degree of missed focus was a lot more than any of the posted images show, in fact, I don't see anything sharp so missed focus probably not the problem. Sharpening "3" is very low on a D7000 so JPGs would be pretty soft regardless. Are you seeing anything that is in perfect sharpness in the images?
