FYI theres no such thing as "phase contract". Phase detection and contrast detection are two totally separate things.

Can anyone direct me to a site where I can do the minute adjusting of the lenses? I find some articles that show you where to go in the menu of the E-M1, but after that they don't list anything and I really don't want to try guessing.

Any help is appreciated.



Obviously, if it is in the menu, it's there. But from my understanding of micro adjustment of auto focus, I wouldn't have thought it possible or necessary on any mirror less camera. Could someone explain this to me please??

It's for phase contrast AF control, as that method is rather inaccurate.

Yes, I know micro af adjustment is for phase contrast. Phase contrast is very accurate, but it needs calibration for actual individual cameras with actual individual lenses I knpw how mf af adjustment is done on a dslr. What I want to know is how micro focus adjustment works with phase contrast on a mirrorless camera.--
