"D7000 have auto focus fine tuning?"

Title asks the question. Anyone able to confirm that the D7000 has Auto focus fine tuning like the 300/300S?

Just curious.

Yes, the D7000 does have the AF Fine Tune feature.

Thanks for the information Brian - that moves the D7000 a bit higher on the "camera to replace my D200" list.

It does and the information is on page 246 of the D7000 manual.

As for how it works, it let's you adjust forward or backward focus for a specific lens.

Using a focusing system (I use the LensAlign from RawWorkflow.com) to test focus then adjust appropriately.

Funny thins is I just help a workshop in Colorado Springs on lens alignment.

Yes, it does, and that was one reason for me to replace my otherwise excellent D90. Got my D7000 yesterday and tried to check whether it would be on-focus with my 24-70 f2.8 (D90 was about 2'' short at 5 ft, would focus on the tip of the nose rather than the eyes...)

But I could not get the D7000 to use a single focus point! Set to AF-S, single point, it would still blip red on two, three or more points, making the LensAlign trick (using an old ruler at 45 degrees) useless.

Any thoughts?

Jason France from yellowwagonphoto@hotmail.com answered my concern by e mail:

-------------

The switch for manual and autofocus next to the lens mount (now has a AF mode setting) button (in the center). Push the button and rotate the selector to 39 points. Then you can move the button on the back of the camera to the point you desire.

That should do it! Took me awhile also to find that!

--------------
Thank you, Jason!

My experience:

You must turn the front (or "sub-") command dial to switch the number of engaged sensors from one to 11 to 39; before Jason's advice, I only had been turning the rear "master" command dial btw AF-A, -S and -C!

And the menu only chooses btw 11 and 39, not really giving an explanation how that would affect the single sensor selection.

Will reread the manual but honestly don't think any of this is explained on the focus pages (p 91 + or so, from memory.)

And so to bed, will do my stupid LensAlign trick (using an old ruler at 45 degrees) tomorrow.
