IMO, having to do manual micro-focus adjustment should be unnecessary. There should be an automatic adjustment that uses contrast and phase focus sequentially and adjusts automatically. Its something that the camera could do in about a second or two. And its largely something that could be done in code.

Nice one. Get yourself a patent on that idea.

He would have a problem there. My idea first, or at least I've never seen any other mention of it until now since my post last year.........

Self-calibration

Nah ... I have written about it earlier. I wanted it for my K-7, finding the manual micro adjustment tedious and not so accurate. I even tried to see if I could implement it using tethering. But ... it seems like you cannot do micro adjustments over the tethering protocol.

Now he says.... do you realise how long it took me to find my old summer 2011 calibration post what with DPR's lousy search function

You can blame me, I invented that...
