That would be more of an issue with the lens than the body. Try sending in the lens and body to Nikon and get them realigned (forgot the word)


My Tokina 11-16, Nikon 17-55 AND Nikon 70-200 all need -15~, so I think it's the body.

Is the issue in the pictures or just the viewfinder?

thanks man

It looks perfectly sharp in the VF to my myopic eyes at least, but it's obvious that it's OOF in playback. Using contrast AF in Live view gives perfectly sharp photos.

Definitely sounds like the body. I only ever had to use microadjust on one lens and that was the 50 f/1.4 I had for a week.

Getting to see my family and friends together in one place is certainly the best gift a guy like myself could receive, a belated Merry Christmas to all of you!

I don't understand the whole notion of asking for something for Christmas. My parents in the past have helped me out with say paying for a portion of a trip, etc. as my Christmas gift, but we've never been a family who asks what the others want. I like the whole idea of having to really think to get something personal for them. I also enjoy the surprise of getting something that maybe you really wanted/needed but didn't think of it.

My family is the same way too. Xmas is actually a low key thing. Especially in this economy, I make sure they never try to get me anything anyways because I know they need the money for bills and such, and it's still T-minus ~9 years before I can get started on my career. The gifts I do get for people, they're usually cheap but personal gifts. I can't afford anything expensive anyways, and I think it's the thought of a gift that counts more than how much it's worth.

So people who complain about how they didn't get iPhones and are upset about it? /Hits with my Mag Alloy camera body.

Self-entitled kids these days doh.gif

My parents complain when I don't ask for a whole lot, lol... They both grew up in families where Christmas gifts were a very strong tradition, so we always go out of our way to get some nice things for each other.

On a photography note, I'm probably going to purchase a lens to use with my Dad's N2020 for my photography class next semester. Yes, it may be a bad camera in the grand scheme of things, but it's free, it has a lot of sentimental value, and Dad has taken a ton of great photos on it in the ~20 years he's had it.

None of my lenses will work (they're all G-type and/or AF-S), and currently Dad has a Sigma 28-70 f/3.5-4.5 and a 70-200 f/3.8 for it. The tele zoom is a pretty decent lens, but the 28-70 is horribly soft.

I'm debating between a fast normal zoom (maybe the old Tokina 28-70 f/2.8) or a fixed prime. If I go the fixed prime route, I'm not sure what to do.

I feel like I should get a lens that serves a dual-purpose and works on both of my cameras. So far my main thought is a 50 mm of some sort, whatever I can find for a reasonable price. However, thanks to my Tokina I've found that I rather like the 35 mm equivalent focal length, so I'm also thinking of selling my Sigma and then picking up a 35 f/2 AF-D. And then I'm also contemplating one of the 55 or 60 mm macro lenses, as I don't have a macro currently.

In any event, for it to work on my N2020, it'll have to be either AF, AF-D, AI, or AI-S, and it can't be gelded.
