"RE: MANUAL FOCUS"

I use manual focus Zeiss lenses routinely with the D700. The best way to get sharp maual focus is by using LiveView at high magnification. I suggest that you increase contrast in picture control to make it easier to determine which part of the capture is in sharp focus. If done right, MF gives you better results than AF in most cases - You cannot rely on the "green dot" for focus confirmation, since this not sufficiently accurate.
