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

..the D850 offers a "default" fine-tune number to be entered that will work for all lenses attached, this way don't need to "do for each lens", if that will work in your situation..

..I took a picture with my D850 and Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens, this was shot in Raw, the Jpeg was extracted from the Raw.. see below..

..this image was center cropped at 50% zoomed in..

..I don't have time today to do the actual fine-tuning.. but from initial testings, the recommended value by Lickity Split gave of +12 seems about right..

..Best wishes..

Each camera - lens combination will have their own value. There is no one size fits all in this matter.

..the OP mentioned, the lenses he has are similar in working.. all I'm saying, the OP can try entering a "default" number setting, and see if it will work for him.. of course there is no guarantee.. and of course if doesn't work, then he'll need to fine-tune each lens..

..for me, my permanent fixture on my D850, will be the Nikon 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens, and so I'll be entering my fine-tune number as the "default".. this is just me..

..Best wishes..

Sorry I wasn't clear. My comment was about value recommended by Lickity Split and every combo will have their own value.
