Help me calibrating my old 50D f1.4 on the D800
1

Few days ago took dust off the old 50mm to take a few indoor shots and as I expected they looked "soft", I know the lens is what it is but the main issue is focus calibration, I tried empirically a while ago but doesn't seem to work any good, is there any way to perform a working tuning without any dedicated gear?

Grazie
