Sorry I misread another post. I think so. It’s been that way for a while. The oldest bodies with af adjustment required debug and only stored a single value. That’s changed over time. Look for af fine adjustment in the k5 menu.
Thanks for the tips—this AF adjustment is on my to-do list for the next sunny day we have here in southern England!

You can download some great free calibration charts online. Some people use paper with fine print but I use a wooden post. Its top is cut at 45degrees showing the rings. I pop a piece f straw on it and focus on that. With the texture and the rings its really esy to see where focus is
