    The fence does show a bit of distortion in the Tamron frame.

    Re: Image in the mirror does not mach image in the file

    Thank you all for your interest, messages, comments and samples. I still donīt have a clear picture of what is going on, but I came to a few conclusions after reviewing the pictures and doing some additional tests today:


    - Most of the problems happened with the Nikon 17-35mm f2.8. Since this is an old lens and has recently undergone service after a fall, I guess something is still messed up with it; I will do further tests to make sure;


    - Still, some problems happened with the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR. However, I noticed that in all pictures taken with this lens, the exit metadata refers to a focal distance of 140mm, even when I know it was different (I tested that). Thus, since this is also an old lens, I guess it might have some problems and need a calibration as well. Further, I noticed that the 70-200 has some pincushion distortion, which is visible only when I open it in Adobe ACR and do not apply any lens profile correction. In the camera lcd screen it doesnīt show up because, as mentioned before, it is a JPEG camera corrected image.


    Finally, I also checked the sensor as suggested, and it seemed normal to me. Turning "Auto distortion control" on and off in the camera doesnīt make much difference, at least with the 70-200mm. I havenīt tried yet with the 17-35mm.


    Thus, it all points to be problems with the two lenses and not with the camera body. Anyway, I will try to do more tests with the 17-35 in the next few days to try to confirm this.


    Best Regards and thanks again.

    I don't use incamera correction and with my Tamron lenses, incamera correction does not work.
    I use my XQD card for the NEF files and my SD card for the back-up JPG files.
    I would suggest, try your camera with the lens correction on OFF.
    - yes
    - fact, thank you
    - yes, but correcting in Adobe ACR with a lens profile doesnīt change much the situation
    - doesnīt make much difference with the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR
    - ok
    - didnīt make much difference

    Thank You Very Much and Best Regards.

    I have an older17-35. It's a dog, will ever be a dog, nothing but a dog (sensing a trend here). So I'm not surprised by you having trubs with it.
    Get it back to Nikon ASAP. Only reason I haven't done same with mine (lame excuse) - busy with other things.

    Does your camera have the option for grid lines in the viewfinder ?
    May be a good reference or at least another data point for what is going on.
