This is where I calibrate my own lenses....

This is one of a fair few I did when calibrating ... errrr I the 60mm I think

Again, because the array's have a horizontal and vertical component (worse in D7000 due to array size)...setting your AF-Fine tune based on angled targets (especial close range) can result in an inherent error. May not show up when you "check" using a flat wall and CDAF vs PDAF comparison due to DoF limitations. Will show up though (if the setting was off) when shooting at different distances at subject occupying a tiny field of focus.

Example: This is is a perfectly calibrated 50mm lens (requires zero adjustment). Focused here on the center dark line. Had I used these results to set AF-Fine tune...I would have induced an error and set a - correction when none was actually required.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
