AF fine-tune VF or LV?
Jan 2, 2013

Today I used lens-align to do my fine tune.  The product works well IMO.  Even lining up those red dots was pretty easy.  The instructions on their web has a picture where it appears they use LV.

I did all the fine tune in LV.  But I use the VF for 98% of my shots.  I guess I need to go back and get the camera lined up in LV then switch back to VF and take the picture.  I read more about it today and LV and AF use different focusing methods.  Or does it matter?

It take only about 30 minutes to an hour to do three lenses so not too much time lost.
