Hi,

Two weeks ago I posted a thread about the focus problem of my non-D 35-70/2.8 on F5 and F80. Nikon HK sent the lens back yesterday, and adimtted something wrong on the chip. Unfortunately the D-chip could not be used in this old model.

Then I checked if same mistake occured on my old AF28-85/3.5-4.8 non-D. Expectedly same extent of inaccuracy occurs after puttin on my F5 and F80 during the close distance with error in few inches.

Then I took out my F801, and surprisingly these two old zooms performed perfectly on it.

And finally I checked all my primes (D, non-D and MF). All focused accurately in three cameras.

So I concluded there might be some incompatibility of the non-D zooms on F80 and F5.

I urged you all to find out if same problem exists in your non-D zoom gears.
