"Loss of Lens fine tuning values?"

I was out literally all day yesterday, before sun up until after sundown, 750 images and were very disappointed with the results. When I started to investigate I found that all of my Fine Tuning settings for my lens' has been set to "0".
Is there any way to determine "when" these settings were re-set?
None of my other customized settings have been changed, has anyone else encountered this problem on either a 7000 or 7100?

How did you test and then select the fine tune focus values for each of your lenses to start with?

I used a checkerboard calibrator, with the 45 degree numeric ruler beside. Here is a link to the one I have.

Did you save and number your af fine tune settings?

I don't think there is any direct way to tell when the AF fine-tune values were changed. That's not information that appears in the EXIF data. About all you can do is review your images to see when they started to be out of focus, then try to think if anything unusual had happened at that time.

I have a D7000 and a D7100. Neither has ever lost its AF fine-tune settings.

I'm curious, when you say the settings have been set to 0, do you mean that the list of lenses is gone or that the list is still there but when you attach a lens the "saved value" shows 0?

Nikon ViewNX2 does report the af fine tune value for each shot. You can look and see if the fine tune setting changed during your shooting.

Ah, cool!

Now I see it in the EXIF data using ExifTool, too. Not sure how I missed it before!

I have determined that this has been user error on my part
When I reviewed the Fine tune values the lenses were there and since I did not number them, the "value's" listed were blank and I misinterpreted this to mean there were no values associated with each lens. When I put the lenses on the value for each lense is now available.
The shot quality turned out poor as the Optical Stabilization (VR equivalent) on my Sigma lens got turned off.

It's more likely that you didn't save the settings correctly.

The lens fine tuning settings on my D7000 were zeroed when I did a firmware update.
