Master lens?

Is there a way to determine that one of your lenses can be a "master" lens so you can use it to calibrate the body?

Thanks

The best way to test things is using a chart:
Fixing Front and Back Focus - Causes of Front- and Back-Focus - PentaxForums.com

FF/BF performance may be different with every camera/lens combo.

Almost guaranteed to be due to the nature of the AF system.
