Re: Using global-default AF Tune as +/- 20 workaround

I tried this with my D800 and several different nikon lenes (50mm 1.8G, 20mm 2.8D, 105 2.8 Macro and the 24-85) No matter what value I put in the AF Fine tune - ranging from +20 to -20 it wont focus right with either of the lenses when I'm using the viewfinder. It focuses perfectly when I use the live view the best I got was with the 50mm 1.8G but not that too not in focus like the live view. Is this a D800 body problem? What can I do in this situation?

Are you saying that no AF tune value between -20 through +20 produces acceptable focus results on any of your lenses? If so which end focuses better, +20 or -20? Also have you tried using the default tune value vs the lens-specific values, which provides a greater tuning range.
