Fine-tuning autofocus?!

Re: Fine-tuning autofocus?!

Turns out on my D7000 there are 12 separate tuning values for individual lenses. The stored numbers are used when particular lens is mounted on the camera. After running a few tests, my focus was half a foot off! I'd get clear focus 6 inches after my subject. Fine-tuning -10 fixed it. This is very spooky stuff as I guess some folks go on shooting for years without knowing about these tweaks.
