My real world "Focus on the Eye" by moving the AF spot around seems good, especially with the 70-200mm f/2.8 which is sort of stubborn with FoCal at times due to shake or movement so I surmise.  On that lens I just crank in a -16 (my average between ends of focal length between 70mm and 200mm) and leave it.  When I can see hairs coming out of skin pores I know I'm not far off, even a bit of fabric moire indicates I'm close to being dead on.

In my view, this is the only test that counts. Everything else is just light entertainment and paying for the roofs over the Reikal people's heads. (And no, I'm not dismissing Reikal. Light enterntainment has its value too).
