Vignetting in Nikon 24-120 and D800
Dear RFF friends,
Even though this is a rangefinder forum, this is also the best gathering of photographers there is, where I feel I can pose any problem I may have with any piece of gear, and get advice that's reliable and objective. Hence my audacity of posting a question about something that's happening with a recently purchased Nikon D800 and a Nikon AF lens 24-120 f4 (I believe it's a late version, as it was purchased in 2011).
The problem? Noticeable vignetting in the lower side of the frame only when used with the D800. When I use this lens in my D700 images are fine.
I went and replaced the lens in the D800 with a 24-70 (first version) that I have, and there's no vignetting (which only occurred under low light conditions, BTW).
What needs to be repaired or looked into? Should I send the camera (which I purchased used) back or for repair? I'd like to keep it, because I also purchased a number of accessories for it (battery pack and additional battery). Right now, I'm using it with my 24-70, but I would like to use it with the 24-120 when I want... as I can do with my D700.
Sorry if I'm not being clear... but I appreciate your patience. Thanks in advance!
