D7000 back focusing issues...get it fixed 3 years 10 months ago #3201

Does anybody know if Nikon can actually fix the back focusing issue on the d7000? Has anyone sent one in and it comes back corrected? Thanks in advance!

D7000 back focusing issues...get it fixed 3 years 10 months ago #3242

Costa Gromov: So far i've noticed it on the 35mm 1.8, the 70-200 VR1, and the Tamron 28-75. The only one I can AF tune within cam is the 35mm because it's a fixed focal length. The other one's, the focus varies with different focal lengths. Does your d7000 back focus at all?

Hi Greg. I did see your video on focus. I normally use single point focus like is said in the video, and I do not focus and recompose. The issues i'm having are focus ending up behind where I place my focus point. Like if I were to shoot a portrait and the eyes are not on the same focal plane. I will focus on the front eye, closest to the camera, and the back eye will be the one in focus. I've also shot things that are still, to make sure it's not any sort of movement, or error on my part. I assume that the camera is back focusing. At certain focal lengths, it doesn't appear to be as much of a problem as other focal lengths. It's really quite a frustrating situation.

Hello, hope you will read this. I have the same issue with D5000 and 35mm 1.8. I already askerd Greeeeg about this, he suggested taking camera to the repair, I had no option to do that for now. I've tried to test the system and it shows that the cam and lens IS capable to focus correctly when the conditions are right (isolated small subject on plane bckground, like flower on the table, good lit) > so it's not a malfunction. What I've noticed is that backfocusing same as yours happens in low light situations. It seems the focus goes back about an inch. It seams to me that the part of the cam that is focusing is mislead to calculate the wrong distance when multiple things can be focused at close to the focus point.
I already learned to deal with it by moving myself about an inch back after locking focus, works most of the times.

Petar: I see your example. I know that situation well. I too, also learned to adjust where to put my focus. It didn't seem to do it on my 35mm f/1.8 though. I also have a d5000, as well..besides the d7000. My d5000 is tack on with focusing. I guess all you can really do is keep adjusting where you focus until you can send it into Nikon. Me, I decided to purchased a d700, and am selling all my DX equipment right now.
