Back Focus Revised - New Info...

Thanks to Wally OZ and several other contributors, I have made some changes in my D70 Backfocus web page. Wally pointed out that the Number 2 adjustment in the mirror assembly is for manual focus instead of what I described as sensor position adjustment. If you are one of the people who used my procedure to correct backfoucus you should read the new instructions. It may be that you have given up trying to use manual focus once you got auto focus to work properly.

Although many people were kind enough to thank me for helping solve their problem they are all still at risk for having faulty manual focus adjustment. Please help me to identify those who need to read the new procedure by keeping this thread alive until all have been warned.

As Wally has pointed out, there are still some recent cameras being delivered with this fault. If you have not been satisfied with your image sharpness, you owe it to yourself to at least look. Most cameras are Ok, but a few need to be tweaked.

Here is the page:

After you have seen the new page, please comment in this thread to help others who might need this.
