Mine is also an AF-D. I put it on the camera this afternoon and shot a few frames. Only one particular image caused problems, but I think that was an AF target problem. The rest were spot on.

When I tuned my 16-85, I ended up skipping all the clever scientific stuff. I noticed it was backfocusing on a particular close up subject so I just dialled in more and more negative fine tune until it got that image right. Then I walked around the back yard and shot things near and far, checked on the computer that focus was okay on all of them, and that was it. I think I settled on -10 adjustment. I suspect it's not perfect in all images, but my theory is that DOF will cover a lot of far-distance focus sins a lot of the time. If the lens is bang-on close up, that makes me happy.
