What is the most accurate way to test your focus? I'm another D7000 owner that is doubting my focus. Images from all three of my prime lenses seem soft. I followed instructions from the following link to do a 45 degree focus test on my 50mm which showed my camera back focusing. http://focustestchart.com/chart.html

The other night when I was searching this site, I think I saw someone mention that the above test is not the most accurate test. If not, what is?

If I determine that my camera is missing focus with all of my lenses, is it better to micro calibrate for each lens or to contact Nikon?

If micro calibration is the answer, can someone advise me on the best method to do this?
