Thread: Lens calibration - How often?

  1. #1

    Default Lens calibration - How often?

    I've only heard about Lens calibration from another photog recently. Can anyone tell me more about it? Does it help in focusing speed and accuracy?

    Should I go down to get my lens calibrated? I've been using my Nikon D80 kit lens for about 6 months now.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply guys!

    Ortega, why did you calibrate your f801s? Are there any signs when calibration is required?

    or the area of focus is not where it is suppose to be
