Thanks for your help with this everyone.

Picked up the D800E about 10 days ago from my local dealer and the serial number seems in sequence with other newly supplied bodies.

I would like to fine tune my lenses and would like to hear what current methods are favourite, especially as I have a couple of longer lenses.

Just for interest the lenses are:

AF-S 80-400mm

AF-S 300mm f4

AF-S 24-70mm

AF-S 14-24mm

AF-S 105mm micro

Is there a method that I can use on all of these despite the varying minimum focusing distances.

Thanks in advance


Have you checked to see if they actually need AF fine tune? On my D800E, very few of my lenses need AF fine tune and of those that do, it is minimal, the 80-400 only needing -5.
