Any way to set AF Fine Tune more than +20 on a D800?
Feb 20, 2013

My D800 had the left AF issue and got repaired so the sides were symmetric (and match the center depending on the lens, the 24-70 still back focuses towards the edges compared to center, but I suspect that's a lens property). I sat down with an AF fine tune app and it showed pretty much all my lenses continuously improve right up to +20. Comparing shots from LV and phase detect AF make it clear that even at +20 my lenses are still front focusing. So I was wondering if there was a way to set an AF fine tune value over +20 without sending it back in for repairs.

Thanks, Ryan

PS: Am I right about the focus change between center and edge for the 24-70 being a lens property or is my D800 also screwed up still in that regard?
