Thanks Horshack.

How much does the range vary? Instead of moving increment by increment can you take a jump to speed up finding the other end of the range?

It depends on the lens. On my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 the range is very small, only 4 AF tune units. On my 50G f/1.4 it's 9 tune units. You can jump around at any increment you'd like when trying to locate the general are of the range.

Thanks. Just out of curiosity, any idea what characteristic of the lens determines the range?
