Re: D300 lens AF fine tuning is FANTASTIC!!!!!

I was not to sure if that feature would be any good to me, just as many ways for me to make things worse...nice to hear its working for you.

how did you do it? real subjects (thats how I would feel better) or test targets (maybe the more scientific way)

I sat grinning at the screen for the first 10 minutes I played with the one in the store, they are so nice

I can't tell you how many hours I've spent adjusting my
viewfinder/mirror and learning the focusing idiosyncrasies of a
myriad of lenses, especially my wide aperture primes (28mm, 50mm,
85mm 1.4s etc.) A few minutes with the D300's AF lens fine tuning and
they are focusing spot on consistently MUCH more reliably than the
D200 ever has in the 2 years I've futzed with it. This feature alone
is worth the upgrade in my opinion!!!

Combined with the amazingly sharp LCD to check my focus and a sharper
sensor and I'm in HEAVEN!!!!
