"auto focus adjustment procedure"



Has anyone tried the auto focus adjustment described in this video?

If so, how well did it work?

I don't know. If you slip and hit the wrong thing you could end up making a paper weight out of your camera.

The only good thing in that video is the knowledge about which screw to adjust.

Is that knowledge that's just enough to be dangerous?

One bad slip of the wrench and you could forking over another 6-800 Bucks for a new Camera. If it was old like my D3000 not worth more than $50.00 on the open Market. But if you have just spent 6-800 dollars for a new Camera the last year or two. Don't risk it.

No, I wouldn't spend 6-800 on another 5100. I'm so pissed off with this camera, I'd break out the plastic and get either a 600 or 800. But I'd buy it at a place that has a liberal return policy like Best Buy. I'd buy it in a Saturday morning and test it all day Saturday, and if it exhibited any sign of focus problem it would be returned immediately, no later than Sunday morning.
