Well the focus of some of the D70 from Nikon was off, if you look at the sunset can you see anything that is sharp? I know that there was a chance that I might get a bad camera when I ordered it. There is always a chance you will get a bad item that is just life. Now look at the test shot below. I focused on the center part of the shot but the as you can tell the focus is in back of the focus point.
I posted this shot of a few forums and all told me even with user error they could still tell I had a problem. I got the camera from Norman Camera Co. and they are going to get me a new one. Very Good People!!! And Thanks for the nice words about the sun set I like it too...

I can focus manually and get a sharp image, but I did not pay $1000 for a camera that I would have to focus all the time. And as for the lenses they are fine I have used them for years on my n90s with no problems. It sucks but what can you do? I will get another one and hope I am not really unlucky. lol

Love the sunset. Everything looks focused beautifully. The only thing I think that could possible make it better is not to center the horizon. I'd lower it next time to get a little more sky. Not to much though...don't want to lose the reflexion. Just my opinion.

awesome pic, does ur D70 have a "sunset" setting>? my 8700 does, and it might give you a better auto focus on the backdrop, i failed to use it in my shots, which is why some are blurred in the backdrop, but i will have to use that function next time...but again nice shot

I also use the D70 and wish I had looked a bit more in to it before purchasing. There are several issues with this camera including the focus. It will not focus properly. I tested this out repeatedly including the eyepiece adjustment and have resorted to manual focusing to correct the problem. I have found that setting the focus indicator on the center circle setting and watching the green indicator light helps during automatic use, but I rarely use it in an automatic state. I agree spending $1000+ for this thing and having to rely on manual focusing is ridiculous. Maybe the D100 addressed these concerns. :confused: I've used Nikon equipment since the late 70's and swear by them, but this experience has me feeling a bit less satisfied.

I have heard of this focus problem with the D-70 and have shot almost 10,000 images and all are very sharp. I mostly use the auto focus for the action work I do.
