    D5 focus issue

    I am the original owner and I agree they are considering this to be impact damage. I take it as the "cost of doing business" as I do put a lot of use of both of my pro bodies. I had a D4S, that was purchased new, that required a new shutter after 18 months and 160,000 clicks. My other D4S...

    D5 focus issue

    Estimate from Nikon repair is "FOCUS BENT MOUNT TO GWO". I've had lens mounts replaced in the past, but in those cases the camera would not focus at all of was soft over the entire frame. This is the first time I've encountered the issue where only a portion of the frame was out of focus. If you...

    D5 focus issue

    The right side is always softer than the left and center. Started around 12,000 clicks, or at least that's when I noticed it. I'm guessing something is out of alignment. It should arrive at NPS today. So I should know something by the end of the week.

    D5 focus issue

    This is more out of curiosity, have any of the D5 users experienced any focus issues with their cameras? If so what was the issue and the repair; an adjustment or parts replacement. I purchased one in May and noticed, a few weeks ago and a little over 12,000 clicks on it, that the right 1/3...

    Nikon D6 rumor

    I didn't get mine until Mid may, this year. My only issue is exposure. For some reason, could be operator dysfunction, I can't dial it in as easily as I can with my remaining D4S

    Gymnastic indoors

    I have shot several gymnastic events over the past three months. I use a D4S and either a 70-200 f2.8 or a 24-120 f4. At 2.8 I have been able to keep ISO below 10,000. With the exception of an event I shot in Providence that was so well lit I was able to get down to 5000 at a 640 shutter speed...

    D4s Err Message

    Hi Kevin - always use Nikon batteries. They are calibrated as needed. Dave, maybe the two button re-set is all that was done, I have no way of knowing, since apparantly there are no notes in Adorama's system. I suspect if the issue is going to rear it's ugly head it will, it will be this...

    Nikon D5 - Why so few discussions about it?

    Hi Rich, I am considering selling off one of my D4Ss and getting the D5 (also thinking of holding out for the D5S). How did the D5 work out for you? Low/poor lighting and auto focus are my main interests. I am starting to shoot gymnastics and I have heard some of the venues have horrible lighting

    Nikon D3S is giving me the ERR message. Where to send it for repair?

    If is any consolation Jonathan, I sent my D3S in to Nikon for a simple clean and check at 159,000 clicks. I was told the shutter needed to be replaced, which I did. So yeah I agree so much for 300,000. And the camera was used extensively. So I am not sure Kevin's theory is valid

    D4S auto focus issue

    This has definitely been then summer for camera issues. This is making up for the 20+ years using Nikon and only having to send a camera in for repair once in that time. At that it was a D2Hs when Nikon had the exposure issue and they were fixing the cameras for free.

    D4S auto focus issue

    I had the opportunity to comapare my D4S with a friend's and did not experience the same issues with his. Mine is being delivered to Nikon in Melville today. I am suspecting it is a software/firmware issue as the auto focus is working flawlessly in all other situations except BIF.

    I purchased the 24-120 F4 instead of the heavier and more costly cousin the 24-70 f2.8. I have no complaints, the lens is tack sharp on the D810 and works equally well on my D3S. I did use the pop-up flash on the D810
