Calibrating the split screen in my K100D - Question

Hey folks.

Quick question: If I calibrate the split screen in my K100D with a different shim for correct manual focus, will it throw off the AF?

Thanks,
Bob :-)

No. AF has nothing to do with the split screen.

Good to know. thanks! Just to be sure, when I focus on an object, the finished photo is in perfect focus about a half inch closer to the camera than it should be.

Would I need a thinner shim or a thicker shim to correct this?

Thanks,
Bob :-)

check this Focusing Screen--How to adjust focusing screen--

I think you need a thin one. I never did the calibration since my splict screen in K100D works perfectly.
