Which lens did you use?

The lens was the Nikon 70-300mm G VR which I fine tuned to the camera.


Did you use PROPER testing procedures before you fine-tuned it?

Fine tune is NOT a toy, and should not be used unless REALLY necessary.

I might not have used the correct terminology... I used the AF Fine Tune feature in the Setup Menu.... used a simple technique... shoot, adjust, observe... shoot, adjust, observe... found best focus at -4 for this lens.


That's EXACTLY what I'm talking about.  That is NOT the correct way to use AF Fine Tune (IF it's even needed, which most of the time it is not).

You need to do CONTROLLED TESTS, not just random shooting.  Too many variables, your way.  Ask Mako (or others here) for proper procedure, I don't have time to write it out, or search for it.
