Hi Steve,

Here is a example of what I'm seeing with some of my lenses. I've taken 3 photos with my 4 month old AFS 70-200mm F2.8 VR II. This lens needs a +10 adjustment on my D3X and two D800 bodies. It does not require any adjustment on my D5100 or D3200.

First a before and after AF fine tuning with my D3X. The exposure was with flash at f2.8 and about 9 feet from the target. They are from a 43% enlargement. Focus point was the nose.

No fine tune.

D3200 from the same distance but less of a crop.

I have no explanation for these results. The only other body besides the D5100 and D3200 that doesn't need an adjustment with this lens is my D300.
