I sent in my Nikon D3x to check the sensor-to-lens mount alignment (again). Regrettably, I won’t learn what exactly was off (or not) with the replaced unit, because Nikon is opting to replace it with a new body, which I have to say is exceptional service. I did not ask for a new camera, I just asked for its alignment to be verified/fixed. The replacement has been checked for alignment, so I’m told.
My finalized review of the Zeiss ZF 21/2.8 Distagon in Guide to Zeiss ZF/ZE lenses is coming; its delay was due to two reasons: the damage from rock impact of my first sample, and the subsequent issue with the D3x. Still, I have some lovely images from my June Yosemite photo tour which I’ll be sharing in high-res form in Guide to Zeiss ZF/ZE lenses.
