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..

If the leaf is the target, the actual plane of focus is behind the leaf, hence this is an example of backfocusing. Am I right? If so, then wouldn't you want to move the focal plane closer to the camera, thus in the minus direction?

Can someone confirm my suspicion?

You can't own just one tripod

..oops, I've been running things backwards, lol's.. thanks for your correction ..so back to the drawing board for me
