Last year I had my D7000 adjusted by Nikon service centre for back focus when close in images were difficult to achieve focus. I just purchased D800 and was photographing birds with 300mm f4 lens. D800 on DX crop and D7000 have the same resolution so expected result should be the same. D800 images are crisp and sharp and D7000 images are soft, low contrast and out of focus. This has nothing to do with price difference of the cameras. Every camera regardless of price should have reliable focus. D7000 is the first camera that I ever had with focus problems. I did some testing on D7000 using lens fine tune. Focus improves at +20 but only at distant photos. Close in photos require lens fine tune left at 0. I need reliable back up camera that will perform at all distances. Why would camera focus right at short distance but not at longer distance.? Is this fixable?
