Not my case Re: and that's before we talk AF micro-adjust! ;-)

AF finetuning is very easy to perform with LV AF available and actually saved the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8, the Nikkors required zero adjustment. With D7k, I have to add.

have you seen how many users of enthusiast DSLRs (dk7, 7D) get into lengthy worries, over weeks if not months, because they feel their shots are not sharp enough? They use AF micro-adjust, worry, redo it, worry some more. End up sending the stuff to Nikon / Canon for adjustments. Worry some more. And so on.

With a contrast-detect AF, it will always be 100% precise. And now that it's as fast as the AF's on even enthusiast cameras, which still bother with that obsolete design?
