K-30 fine tuning for lenses

I have a old FA 70-210 lens which gave excellent results with my Pentax PZ-1P film camera. It works fine on the K-30 but I think the focus is slightly off. The K-30 can fine tune the focus for the lens (AF fine tuning) - my question is - once the focus is fine tuned for the 70-210 lens will the corrected setting apply only when this lens is fitted or will it affect other lenses subsequently. The maual is silent on this aspect.

The two option in lens tuning (in K5 for sure) individual lens tuning and one correction for all. Individual will save in camera memory tuning for every specific lens.

It starts on page 110 of the K-30 manual, yes you can apply to all or individually for up to 20 lenses.

To apply fine focus to individual lenses, the camera has to be able to identify when that lens has been mounted. The good news is most lenses capable of AF can be identified by the camera, and most of the lenses that cannot be identified are MF.
