amen on the focus dot for MF lenses and support for more than 12

Dear Nikon - if there is a way to extend this feature in the next rev of firmware, let's go for it!

It's generally more useful on wide aperture lenses. Some of my
3.5-4.5 zooms had some benefit, but not much. It's the wide ap
1.4-2.8 lenses that seem to benefit and much more at close distances.
I think it's best to do the calibration near the closest focusing
distance for the most precision.

The two downsides?? There's only 12 settings and I'd love to do each
and every lens I own. And it doesn't work with the non CPU lens
settings, I guess since those won't AF anyway, but it would be nice
to adjust the focus dot on those. Thankfully my 50 1.2 seems to be
near accurate, I haven't tried my 24mm 2.0.
