    Question Another Focus Problem w/ 200-500, but different than others........

    Hello all,
    I am having a issue with my 200-500. Not like the other problems I have read about. It lock focus just fine. But if I am shooting beyond 25 yards, I am getting blurry photos.Closer shots are sharp. I noticed this when I got it but it was a lot further than 25 yards so I didn't care. But it seems to be getting worse. I have this problem on 2 different bodies and don't have this issue with other lenses. So it definitely seems to be the lens. I am figuring on sending it back to Nikon to get checked out. But wondered if others have had this? The other post I have read have a different focus problem. When I do focus it looks sharp in the viewfinder. But isn't when I download them. Or check them on the screen. I have done the auto focus fine tune numerous times and it is set.

    Any thoughts before I ship it to Nikon?

    I forgot to mention that sometimes it does focus. But it is doing it less and less. Today I was shooting a doe whitetail and I had single point, continuous focus with the sensor right on the face of the deer. Settings was ISO 800. F8 1/2000 sec. No way should that be blurry. But it was. Go figure.
