Hey all,
I just recently got the d200, unfortunately its in the shop for banding. I have faith it will come back pristine...Although that's not just my only problem.

I also own a Tamron 90 f/2.8, the 18-70 kit lens, a sigma 30 f/1.4 and now I've just ordered a Tokina 12-24...With all the lenses I own, I get at least *some* chromatic aberration (purple fringing) in high contrast areas (although properly exposed). I actually bought a Nikkor 50 1.4 and the purple fringe was so bad, I returned it for a replacement. The second one was not much better, so I opted for a refund instead...

The way I hear some people talk in other forums about their lenses and the d200, hardly anyone gets CA. The only lens for me that manages to not get CA is the 18-70 kit and I've done some extensive standardized testing on this also...

Now I'm beginning to wonder if a focal plane adjustment is in order, that it seems highly unlikely that virtually ALL my lenses are defective. Now that its being fixed for banding, I could give them a call to see if they can do something for me...

Does anyone here know if that's possible or do I have just extremely bad luck?
