D7000 - Focus Test instead of daffodils - comments appreciated
Apr 11, 2012

OK, I think I did this correctly. I had the chart flat on a table. A light shining on it. The camera on a tripod at 45 degrees, wide open lens, triggered with a remote.

First shot is my 55mm 2.8 lens, focused manually, by eye

Second shot is the same lens, but where the camera wanted (the little green ball lit up). This was not the same as shot #1, I had to adjust the focus before the camera was happy.
Third shot is my 18-70mm, autofocus.

What do you think?
