"New D600 / new user. Backfocusing on a couple new lenses? Advice."

Hi.
I am a new Nikon owner and have recently traded up to a D600 from my old SONY A700. I am a hobbyist and am learning as I go. Purchased a D600 and a 70MM-200 2.8 VRII and a 50mm 1.8.

Bought a lens cal chart and tested my lenses over a couple of days and my 70-200MM requires a -9 micro focus adjust and my 50mm requires a -5 adjust. A bit of fringing on my 50mm and not nearly as sharp as the zoom. Should it be similarly sharp?

Is this in spec or should I try another body (and try and do better). IT seemed to me with a $5K purchase, the tolerances should be tighter.

Want some real world advice. I'm still within the return / exchange window.

Thanks!
