    One thing I've noticed over the past couple of days is the VR takes much longer to settle - and that might be causing some of the soft images. Today I held down the BBF and waited at least 2 seconds for the image to stop shaking before taking the pics.

    No Shake Reduction here although it could probably use it a little. However, this is MUCH better compared with what I've been getting the past several months.

    I have reached no end of frustration with the Nikon Repair Rep. Supposedly they can't see any softness in the images I submitted although I sent close up images which show the lens focuses normallyyet images taken from a distance are soft (it's always been the distance ones that don't focus well). But more importantly, he is ignoring my repeated question as to why he isn't address the VR issue. It was included when I sent in the lens the first time, and as soon as I realized it was omitted from the service order, I called a second and third time trying to get it added to the repair. I even wound up with more than one repair order number due to my calls. It shouldn't take the Normal VR an extra second or two to settle down before the shutter is pressed when the Sport VR works properly. Images taken with the Normal VR have a tendency to jump around inside the viewfinder and aren't always in focus unless I hold down the button and wait longer than usual for the image to settle.

    He wanted me to turn off the AF Tuning. I did that and submitted images yet received another request for the same thing. I've never had any luck with getting a repair done correctly the first time. In the past, the repairs that weren't successful the first time were my D600 (3 failed repairs), 20mm f/2.8 lens, SB-910, and now this lens.

    In the interest of customer satisfaction at this point they should have just replaced the VR components or the lens. Wish you had a better experiences.

    Yes, it would be nice if they'd do that. He wants another image with the AF Fine Tuning turned off. I told him I never had any value set for the 300mm lens alone - only for the 300mm lens coupled with the 1.7x TC. But I went out yesterday trying to find a suitable subject. One that needs to be in the far distance since that where the AF suffers. I settled on some signs, but it was so immensely hot here - and of course the signs are near asphalt - that heat refraction showed up. So I need to go out again today since the temps will be a little better.

    I was really surprised to hear Nikon considers the pigeon photos to be sharp enough. BUT I have to turn off the AF Fine Tune which I thought I already did and submit something new.

    I'm curious as to how many hours you estimate that you've spent on this ordeal?

    I have no idea. One thing he asked is for me to turn off AF Fine Tuning. Although I forgot to do that, there isn't any value listed for just the 300mm lens since I don't use the lens alone. I am surprised by what he wrote and need to go out yet again. But it makes me wonder why would the AF Tuning affect the image if it is turned on without being set to any number.

    This is what he wrote:

    After evaluation, we haven't found there to be an issue on these images as they are rather sharp. However to be sure to disable AF Fine Tune as in the images you provided it is still enabled, thus making it hard to properly evaluate them fully. We recommend turning this feature off and sending some additional pictures. In regards to your VR issue, after disabling AF Fine Tune we can further evaluate the picture to see if there is anything wrong regarding it. If it is a mechanical issue we often advise to troubleshoot with us regarding that as opposed to pictures.
