... But so far it seems that camera MFA = -12
gives pretty sharp results.

Yeah mine is -8s and -9s... although since the Sigma fw update I may have to readjust the closer ranges... we'll see... strange...

Mine is -9 in cam but its bang on with that. I may one day play around and try and do a calibration with the dock at each focal length to see if it is any better.

That's interesting about keeping the camera at 0 and letting Sigma do the adjustments. I'll have to try that. So far I only set
the MFA in camera.

When time permits, I'd like to do more MFA at different FLs and distances to the target. Also try dot tune or Focal method. But so far it seems that camera MFA = -12
gives pretty sharp results.

Some owners are enjoying a -0- change and some of us up to a +/- 12 change... I guess that is the roulette wheel we get with a lens at this focal lenth at this price. But when dialed... damn she is a sharp lady ;-)a

What distance you usually use for MFA? The 50x rule doesn't sound reasonable. 150 @ 10 meters, 600 @ 20 meters?
