Just wondering if anyone else is having this issue. My D850 is front focusing with 4 lenses I tried (105mm F/1.4E, 200mm F2/G, Tamron 90mm F/2.8 Macro VC and Sigma 50mm F/1.4 Art)

Has anyone else having this issue? All the lenses are fine with my D810.

Didn't expect this from D850

Why did not you expected it from D850? Could happen with any DSLR. If it happens with all your lenses by the same amount, just change default AF setting, or adjust lenses.

Because if you read the D850 manual it says... "AF Tuning is not recommended in most situations and may interfere with normal focus". I'm sure that's why there is disappointment.

The same written in the manual for every camera which has AF fine tune feature. But a lot of people use it. Robert Cicala with lensrentals explained why this is happening years ago.
