AF Fine Tune

Well... here we go D7200 and I need to tune all my primes... PITA.

So here is what I did...

Camera on sturdy tripod.

50 x focal fron target.

Widest aperture.

VR off.

Focus on a flat piece of rough wood... Weathered 2x4...where you take a pencil and make a single dot.

Focus on the dot... Single centre focus point.

You will see a very distinct line of focus relative to the dot.

AF tune accordingly if its behind or in front untile the focus line is right on the dot.

Use Mup or timed release... Done.

Works perfectly... No charts... Comparing numbers for clarity... Just move the very thin line of focus onto the dot which you are focusing on.

Works for me... Simple fast and dead on.

Anyone else have any other unique methods?
