Ok, forgive the naive question, but I was wondering if white balance settings had any affect on accuracy? I have a vague memory of someone somewhere stating that changing the AWB from "normal correction" to "strong correction" (I'm not sure of the correct terms) had an effect under tungsten; and I think I saw something in regard to tungsten focusing issues with the D7000 being worked around with white balance adjustments also. I may be misremembering. As for daylight or other lighting -- has anyone observed the white balance settings having any effect on the AF?

(Personally, I gave up trying to adjust AF for daylight shots; I believe most AF problems I have are simply a case of the camera locking on to different targets than I expected. I can only reduce that with experience, if at all. In tungsten, my DA40 ltd definitely front focuses. I haven't checked other lenses for that.)

I usually leave the AWB setting and it work well.
