Canon why not install a little motor for fine adjustment?

It's a shame this can't be done electronically.

Instead of a small cap screw, a little motor could be fitted to make the fine adjustment. If a motor was installed Canon can set-up the camera as normal (factory default), and 'If' the camera is out of calibration the end user can then make the adjustment as required.

This would benefit Canon as there would be fewer cameras sent back to service due to being out of calibration. It would help the end user because they will not have the hassle of returning their camera becuase of a focusing problem.

Everyones a winner!!
