K-7 AF fine tune on zoom lenses?

I "searched" before posting this and come up with nothing...


Is it possible to fine tune the AF on my K-7 with my zoom lenses? If so, at which focal length do I adjust? Widest? Longest? Any difference one affects the other?

Thanks for the help!

It is possible and the recommendation from Canon is to do it at the longest focal length.

I think you should do it at the focal length you use most, or where it will be most critical, or whatever setting gives you the best comprise for all focal lengths.

Here are a some AF adjustment hints.

I'm quite sure there was another thread recently about this. Maybe worth to do a search.

PS:
Ha, found it by searching the forum for adjust zoom:

excellent. I will do some testing and see what I come up with...hopefully the results will yield no need to tweak the camera settings. The lenses I use most seem fine and I dont usually wank off with pixel peeping, but the thought of at least testing seems logical.
