AF micro-adjust on 80D

I've used a 60D for some time and have wondered about the accuracy of the camera's AF or the performance of my 70-200 2.8L. Today I did a bunch of tripod mounted test shots at f 2.8 and found that the 60D AF was consistently placing the plane of sharp focus a bit in front of my target, no matter which focus spot was in use. I did a test using MF in Live Vue with a loupe on the LCD and the focus was right on the money.

I've been looking at an upgrade to the 80D, and the fact that it offers the AF micro-adjust feature is very appealing; I'd like to get all the sharpness my 70-200 is capable of! How often do 80D users use this feature? How effective is it?
