Reikan FoCal AF-tuning of 2x Sigma 35mm/1.4 on D800

I've found Reikan FoCal to be unreliable at 1.4

Just a heads up.  I've actually had Reikan report a "good fit" at -18(!) on two different bodies, when in reality, a manual test reported the same lens needed 0 on one body, and +5 on the other.

My suspicion is that the Reikan "Quality of Focus" algorithm is thrown off by local CA.

In any event, I would strongly suggest doing a manual test just to make sure Reikan isn't the problem.

I've also heard that people have had better results using something other than the Reikan target.
