What do you use to shoot at to tell if your Lens' are front focusing and what is the procedure to correct?

Thanks, Tom W

There are a lot of test targets out there that you can get.  Some you can buy but I download a free one somewhere.  They are easy to find online.

Typically to shoot at a 45deg angle at the target at the centre point then examine the picture to see how much it is out.  Usually I start with three shots with the adjustment set at -5, 0, +5 and then iterate from there.  On a tripod, center focus point, shoot wide or close to wide open, ...

If they are all front focusing then it is possible you only need a single global adjustment for all your lenses as opposed to separate values for each lens.

Or send the K-1 in for adjustment
