After many months of frustration with this lens, I finally decided to try zone focusing or if not successful, hyperfocal focusing. As it turned out, zone did not work as yet. But hyperfocal seems to be giving some joy. The trick for me at least is to find out where infinity is (it is generally not where it should be ). Mark it or remember it's position. Keep an aperture of f8 or so and then for everything beyond 20 feet or is mostly on focus. A slight adjustment gives better results. At larger apertures, o am still struggling.

Asked the techgnician at the Nikon service centre who assured me that the shutter had been replaced. I was not very convinced. Now after a few months of shooting, the sensor remains clean and pristine ( lets hope it lasts!)
I think it did get replaced.

I finally got back my nikon D600 from servicing for a dirty sensor. Unlike other reports of replaced shutter mechanisms and even replaced bodies with nikon d610, l got my camera back with a sensor cleaning and a firmware update. I would be interested in other experiences from India.

Today morning., with some gratification I noticed that some three comments were awaiting moderation on my humble blog. Now this is an extremely rare occurrence and I justifiably believed that I was getting back some readership. Little did I know that my innocuous post on Rahul Gandhi had invited the ire of some one. And that someone had posted the same comments thrice before realizing that comments are moderated. Made me realize that there seems to be this group of people who have nothing but trawling the internet to do. I am sure that a lot of money is being spent as well.

I saw the interview on TV and must say that I was disappointed at his performance. I don't know if that is because he is just not very bright or because he had been tutored to get away in typical fashion by simply not answering a question and going on with something else. I want to believe the former.
My advise is very simple. Stop trying to defend the indefensible. Be a true politically correct liberal like Nehru rather than trying to pay only lip service. Be truthful and admit that you and your party made mistakes and go to the people with humility. India values it.
