"RE: Focus Problems Continue -- Your Insight Requested"

I spent some time just shooting around a trendy street with my daughter. Enough with "testing"

The walking around shots were fuzzy too, more so with the 24 70 than the 105 2.8. Wich made me think that's really odd.

So I broke out a ruler at home and tried some shots and sure enough it is front focusing like crazy. I tried the fine tune settings but I maxed out the 24-70 with the focus point still 2 inches too close.

The 105 got within an inch of the target at plus 15 and I gave up to go for a bike ride.

This raises a question about my second trip for the left focus fix. What the >#!|%%{. Really, there is no way that anybody could have really checked this camera and pronounced it shooting on target. Unless their test lens is coincidentally -15.

I have several other lenses left to test. But I am seeing a trend toward severe fron focus.

Is this the sort of thing that could be fixed by a competent technician? I do not mean at Nikon. I'm going to just pay somebody to fix it.
