After over 210,000 actuations on my D300, I ordered a new one. It arrived today and I am re-adjusting all the dials and settings the same on the new one to match the old one.

Not long after I received my first D300, I adjusted the AF Fine Tune settings in the camera for my 200-400 VR lens. I didn't have to compensate the camera for a 24-70mm or a 70-200mm. Does it make sense for me to initially set the new body to the same AF Fine Tune settings? Is it normally the lens that causes the need for the adjustment? The new body arrived around 7:00 pm today, so I didn't have much light to work with and didn't get to that setting.

Also, with 210,500 actuations, I am wondering whether it would be worth it for me to send the old D300 to Nikon for maintenance/cleaning/service? If I remember correctly, they are only rated for around 150,000 actuations.

Thanks in advance,
M. Jackson
