A bit of clarification, please.I have discovered that my 35mm 1.8d lens is back focused on my d7000. (my 85mm 1.8 seems really close)I have adjusted the af fine tune for the 35 at -13, and seem to be getting better results.Back in the corner of my deteriorating memory I think I recall someone exhorting another to turn off af fine tune when shooting.So do I only turn it on to set the values and then turn it off when shooting? Or does it have to be on in order to provide the settings to the lens/camera?It's not clear from the manual. Thanks.

It has to be turned on in order for it to use the fine tune value. Off - the fine tune is set to zero. On - the fine tune is set to the value you determine it needed to be (in your case -13)Pete WilsonNikonian from Lake Orion, MichiganMy Nikonians galleryNikonians membership - My most important photographic investment, after thecamera

I'm back...I had forgotten to mention what puzzled me in the first place.When looking at an image in Viewnx2, the information displayed by "Edit" indicated that AF Fine Tune was on at -13.That was what I had set for my 35mm 1.8; the shot in question was taken with my 85mm 1.8.So why would Viewnx2 show any af fine tune info is my question. Have I set something global by mistake?

If you set the "Default" AF tuning to -13, yes, all the lens you use on the camera will use -13.

>If you set the "Default" AF tuning to -13, yes, all>the lens you use on the camera will use -13.Correct. Set the AF fine tune for the lens using the "Saved value" setting. If you set the "Default," that value will be used for any lens that doesn't have an associated "Saved value" set.

Help for the senile:I cannot find out where the default af fine tune is set/reset.I'll keep hunting, but a quick point to the proper menu would help.Thanks.

Set Up Menu > AF Fine Tune > You'll see Saved Value, Default settings

Thank you. It's little wonder I didn't see it-- it was in front of me. Now, where did I put my glasses.....
