New KS2 needed +6 af adjustment for 35mm

Hi all, I noticed my KS2 photos were pretty soft so I attempted to adjust the AF. Once I adjusted it to +6 it seems better. Is this a concern for a brand new camera? it doesn't leave much for room to adjust in the future.
It's still within return period, so I have that option. Love the camera though .

Having to do AF adjustments is perfectly normal. If a +6 adjustment did the trick, then you're all set. Enjoy the camera!

I hope you did not calibrate it using Live View.
As far as I know, the K-S2 uses CAF only (contrast measurement) in Live View , not PDAF.
Adjustments of AF as offered in the menu only influences PDAF (phase detect).
