Re: Does MA only affect auto focusing - or manual focusing ?

Forgive possibly a very basic question but as we know the dumbest question is the one you don't ask. I am still on my learning curve for many aspects.

Does MA simply affect the auto focus ?

When I am using manual focus am I seeing WYSIWYG or am I seeing what the camera a"thinks" it is seeing at the time but then the recorded image is different. And thus MA affects both Manual and Auto Focus ? I know of course I am not seeing DOF in the EVF by default.

I adjusted my lenses on the weekend and had a couple of -10 and + 10 and when I was doing the process it seemed that what I saw on the panel EVF was very close to what I saw in the photo.

I also found it a bit confusing trying to adjust my 70-300 Tamron as when zoomed in its at 5.6 so it always had more DOF than the other lenses and thus harder to see the printed image even zoomed in close - maybe I need to print it larger !
