My take on the original post was that the OP didn’t approve of forum members suggesting AFMA until after every other remedy has been exhausted. I’m sure that works for him but I don’t think it is really appropriate to suggest that AFMA is rarely needed or that it is something that should be done with trepidation or as a last resort. Personally, checking calibration is the first thing I do when I mount a lens on a body for the first time. That way I can immediately be sure that any soft photos aren’t due to poor calibration of the lens or body. It’s an easy way to narrow down potential issues.

It’s sort of like when you buy a rifle. Do you sight it in first or do you just take it out of the box and start shooting?
