Has anyone had any issues using the Auto Fine tune? It clearly seems like it's helping get much shaper pictures when viewed at 100% and taken with large apertures; however, as you know the calibration also does depend on the focusing distance...I used min. for each focal length and lens, but also tesetd using a distance between the min and max recommended.

in any case thought to share and any feedback is appreciated!

I had my D600 and Nikkor 50mm f1.8 calibrated today at the local camera shop.  It required -10.  It clearly improved my focus.  I will take my 24-70 and 70-200 next week.

I would rather it not be this much off but I suppose that's what the fine tune is for.  Never had a focus issue with any of my other cameras but like the D600 a lot so far otherwise.
