Re: Another DX/FX Question (610 vs 7100): lens compatibility

Not to change topics in mid-stream, but I have gone through calibration on both lenses several times to no avail.

Once I hit +/- 15 adjustment, I figured something was wrong with the camera. I used a very high contrast (black on stainless steel) ruler and a tripod with additional weight on top of the camera (to reduce shutter slap) and used a remote trigger. I shot from 3-5 feet away at a 45 degree angle (or steeper), used center point AF, etc. In other words, followed directions posted in forums to the letter.

At no calibration, the lens was 1/8" off from three feet away. I could never get it better than 1/16" off. 1/16" is a HUGE problem as everything is noticeably "off".

If you can think of anything else I can do, I am all ears.
