Live view auto focus is always spot on accurate because it uses contrast detection. Phase detection (normal focus w/o live view) is also accurate if it's calibrated correctly.

Thanks agsy. I gonna sound really thick by asking this. What does this mean 'Check the focus ring location using live view and compare it to the contrast detect location after AF'.
I should have said phase detection location instead of contrast, sorry.

Aahh. I get it now. I'll give that a go when I get the chance. Many thanks.

Best regards.
