all my glasses have the same focusing quality, as far as i tested.

under daylight, they all focuses very well. however, under
candecent light, i need to adjust the focus correction to -80 um to
reverse the front focusing. all my glasses ff under candecent light.

I did some test late last night with the FA* 85/1.4. It always front-focus under incandescent light on the *ist D and the K10D. In the service menu, I had to register a -140 um for a totally accurate AF compared with manual focus using split-screen. However, under natural sunlight this morning, I can clearly see that at -140 um, the 85 would back-focus quite a bit. In fact, in my brief test, the 85 did alright when I put the calibration back at the value of "0".
