  • It may be +17 now but what about a couple years from now it may change.  Also, a high af fine tune value may interfere with focusing at infinity.  I prefer to stay closer to + or - 10.  While you ...
  • Replied in Best long lens
    I use a 600mm lens and love it. Used on a tripod or even a monopod the weight is no issue, though a tripod rig weighs more and a gimbal head adds to the weight. You answer youu own questiion here. ...
  • Hi Jim, When I was using NX2 and had from the beginning, I only used it for processing the raw and converting to tiff and off to CS4 for the real fun. Both had the nik pluggins. Now, with the D810, ...
  • Does the Tamron have onion ring bokeh? Ray
  • Your fortunate have some good luck with your gear and good job helping out the person with the D7000.   Many folks today wish they could say the same thing. Ray
  • Hi Leonard, All things aside one can easily take a picture and view the picture and see if its razor sharp. If ones not getting sharpness, as they are acustomed too, then you can focus all day on ...
  • I usually find the no FT rig is sharper then a FT rig at least by a small margin, though, it has been a long time since I've had such a rig.:( I have a 24-70 that was always spot on with my D2x, D3 ...

  • Mike you hit it right on the head man.  The center hole of the small target has to be in perfect alignment.  If your off target just a bit you should adjust the target not the lens. This will make ...
  • The zero line accuracy means how close you are with being on a parallel plane of the target so the zero's on the ruler are lined up with the target.  At least I beleve thats what it means. I ran ...
  • Thanks for chiming in Island! I purchased the fusion bundle, which is the mkII with the new larger target and the gen 3 focus tune software.  So I have the latest and greatest. I didn't fine the ...
  • Hi Bernard thanks for you input.  After each focus adjustment you defocus the lens counter clockwise and shoot again. The deviation has me shaking my head. Below are two graphs from focus tune at ...
  • Looks like I did all those things. On the back of th smaller target I used the center one.  I used std pic control but did use monochrom once.  I defocused to the left each time and not much, but ...
  • Hey there, I used the small target first per instructions for lvling, then I used the larger target as indicated per instructions and video.  The ruler side was A used for focus tune.  Here is a ...
  • Got my D810 back from Nikon service Wednesday.  Tried lens align a few times yesterday and today. Focus tune was hit and miss.  After uncertainty, of which one af point was best  on -1 and also +1 ...
  • You will get them next time buddy no doubt. Ya thats the thing with Group af its tough to nail the center focal point even when aimed perfectly. It does, however, produce. cheers, Ray
  • The D810 has the same focus module as the D4s so I'm not sure why your not getting great results from it.   Sounds like A3 (focus tracking with lock-on) in custom settings was set to normal or ...
