5D mkIII microadjust
Jul 10, 2012

Hi,

Just tried to see if my 50mm f1.4 lens needed micro adjusting as described here: http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/cameras/1ds3_af_micoadjustment.html

Made the adjustment at a distance of around 3 meters.

It seemed to be fine so for the hell of it I made the adjustment to +20 and really couldn't see much difference at all, same with -20.

Surely if adjusted this much it should be way out of focus, or is it a really minor adjustment?

Or could I be doing something wrong in the adjustment, I did RTFM :/
