Could you please expand on the actual workflow involved?


This is what it worked on my camera.

1. Run PK_Tether.exe (camera has to be ON and connected to your PC and have an SD card inserted) - The top LCD display on your camera will flicker.

2. In the software, on the top menu turn the Camera Debug Mode ON (at this time the top LCD light will turn OFF).

3. Turn camera Off and disconnect from your PC.

4.Turn camera back ON and go to Menu. Go to the C tab - Test Mode - AF Test. I set my value to +120um since my lens was Back focusing. I don't know what Area Test and AF Area number are so I left them at 0

5. Scroll down to Desbu Mode Disable and disable the debug Mode.
6. Turn camera Off and On again.

Now, when you go go custome function 26 (AF Fine Adjustment) it will still show + - 10 but it looks to me that now those values have increased quite a bit since my back focusing issue is now gone.

I hope this helps
