Nikon D7000 Focus Issues
Here is an example from this weekend. The focus was locked on Frosty (red square) but Frosty is out of focus and the area behind Frosty appears in focus.
I've already sent this body back to have the flash repaired. Now it looks like it is going back for AF repairs.
Just curious if anyone else is having these issues.
BTW. I've had film SLRs and DSLRs for 20+ year (Canon & Nikon) and have not had these issues.
If I may go off on a tangent for a moment, and don't take this the wrong way or think I am singling you out. I have never experienced a focus issue with any camera, be it an auto focus SLR or DSLR, and I have used both digital and film AF bodies from Canon and Nikon. The digital cameras I have used are a 7D, 5D mark 2, Rebel T1i, and for Nikon: D200, D5000, D3 and never once I have experienced a 'focus issue.'
I seriously doubt the D7000 is plagued with issues like focus and other things, even though just about every day someone posts a thread saying they cant focus or this or that. I think most of these focus issues (and other issues) are operator errors, and yes there can be some actual issues, but to me most of them seem to be operator errors.
PS too Greg: why must we enter a code down there, even if we are registrated users?
Greg - Yes I did catch your video..thanks! I use single point AF almost all of the time unless there is lots of movement. I plan on doing some tests tomorrow to see if I can figure this out. Thanks for the suggestions.
RawSh00ter - Did you sell your D7000? Just wondering if you got yours fixed or just gave up?
Forgot to add... all the testing I did was using the center focus-point on all bodies tested.
