Thank you for the time and thought you out into helping me.
I started another thread with a few samples of the before and after fine tune results.
I've given up on test shots. But your software sounds really handy. I would like to have that capability. Too bad we need it.
And you are also right..why shoot a mailbox anyway. The samples I posted in the other thread include a few targets that are equally unrealistic, but they show the before and after pretty clear.
Now that I've isolated the symptoms to a repeatable front focus problem, the next step is figuring out how it got that way during repair number 2, why the doctor made the patient worse, and what can be done to fix it.
I'd be grateful if you'd drop into the other thread and have a look. Now that the problem is isolated I'm hoping there will be some discussion over there.
