in between 0-5 probably or 5-10?

start with +5 maybe +10. You have your menu a2 setting set for "release" you may want to change that to "focus" and leave your menu a1 setting (AF-C) on "release". If doing your focus testing in AF-C...change menu a1 to "focus" as well. Good Luck

Hi Mako,

Thank you again for suggestions.

I've purchased the Reikan Focal software (for af fine tuning) and run a test last night.

My Nikkor 16-85 was on and the focal length was set to 50mm and according to this the result value was -10...
(I was so tired that I ended the test without running the test for 16mm and for 85mm so I'll run the test again for 16,50 and 85mm asap..)

So I really am confused.You advise me to put the values around +5 and +10 but according to this new software's test (which I believe I did it the right way) it says the fine tuning value should be -10.
