It is quite straightforward, but you may need a lens calibration tool to help. You can get one from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/LensAlign-MkII-Focus-Calibration-System/dp/B004G3PANY

You can also use a long ruler for the same purpose thought.

The settings in your camera:

  • select the spanner

  • scroll down to AF fine tune

  • turn on AF fine tune

  • take a test shot of the ruler and see where whether the focus point is the same as where your camera was focusing. Adjust accordingly.

Couldn't be easier.

Remember to use a tripod!

The YouTube video could help - it is for Canon, but the process is the same
