Hmm.... Then i'm pretty convince that you're having the shimming wrong... :/

How "off" i'm not too sure on that coz only you would know. Sorry..

But just remember,

FF = lesser shim
BF = more shim

It's easier at closer distances but when I'm outside focusing 2 5+ meter, the focus point is "way" off.

Thanks for the FF/BF shim summary. I keep forgetting that and hate the trial and error method while the mirror is up.

Aaah, the pure joy of shooting manual focus lenses is back. My 85mm f1.4 is so much easier now
