But the point is....do not settle on a camera that needs a +/- 20 to get ALL your lenses in focus. The camera is NOT in spec. Focus calibration should be required when using lenses that are out of tolerance, not because the camera is out of tolerance!

But the point of putting focus adjustment settings in the camera is to allow users to do their own calibration instead of sending cameras back and more time and cost to the camera maker.

The point of calibration is to allow users to adapt camera settings to use lenses that are out of calibration. If the camera needs a large calibration adjustment value to use ALL lenses, it's broken....
