I have a problem which seems to be impossible to resolve.

Are there any Nikonians in the UK who can help me dealing with the machinations of the Nikon Repair centre.

I take pictures of birds. I use an AFS 300mm F4 + TC14E. For many years I shot a D300.

The lens autofocusses perfectly but with the TC attached I have to dial in +20. Eventually I decided to do something about it. I sent all 3 to the repair centre. They arrived back with a note saying they had been tested and a slight adjustment made to the camera.

Unfortunately the autofocus remained unchanged. I contacted them and was asked to send it all back, which I did. A week or so later they all arrived back with a note saying there was nothing wrong. They did not contact me before sending them back.

At that stage I gave up, knowing that I would soon be getting a new camera. I now have a beautiful new D800 but the problem is precisely the same. Since the problem only appears when the TC is used it is reasonable to assume that it is the culprit.

I contacted Nikon support who, as I suspected, suggested going through the whole process again. I am loathe to do this.

Is there anyone out there who has any suggestions what I could do.
