    I send my 1st, (very early release), D2X body in for repair about 3 wks ago, and they went through the whole thing tweaking the focus & mirror. I'd say it's working pretty good now! Much better than before. I couldn't even get a sharp shot when it was frozen still while fishing before it went in!
    This shot was taken at an easy 400ft away with my 500 f4 + TC 1.4, so @700mm. The 1st uncropped shot gives you an idea of how d@mn far away this critter was. It was a little underexposed, so I added .17 in NC4, thus the noise in the dark part of the wings...prolly not that apparent at this reduced size.

    Model NIKON D2X

    I'd say that your focus issues are fixed. Congratulations. :wink:
