Tamron 70-200 2.8 G2 AFMA does this appear normal?

First time poster but long time lurker. Just received my first zoom today, a 70-200 f2.8 and I have the Tamron console. I've been playing with it to make sure I have a good copy.

After reading some threads about how to do AFMA on a zoom with Reikan Focal here is what I did to get these results: Ran a Reikan Focal test 3 times for focal lengths 70mm, 100mm, 135mm, 200mm at f2.8. I repeated this process at 1 meter (MFD), 5 meters, and 10 meters since these are the distances that Tamron has in their Tap-In console software.

I made sure that the DSLR (a Canon 6D) was set at AFMA 0 for all tests, turned off VC, used a good light source, made sure the lens firmware was up to date and taped the viewfinder.

I got the values below and I haven't put them into the Tamron software yet. Does this appear normal? I really have no idea. It was much easier with my primes.

Thanks in advance. AFMA with a zoom takes forever compared to my primes.

EDIT: I entered these settings into the Tamron Tap In Console and got the following new values from Reikan. Something looks weird at 135mm.

Canon EOS 6D Panasonic Lumix DMC-G2
