Lot's of migrants coming through.... Nice to see different different subjects, even if the light is less than optimal.

been having a few doubts of late re-sharpness with the lens and 80d ,the penny finally dropped last night that it might be a micro adjust problem ,and yep it threw up a front focus problem .i have now adjusted to +8 and just been out doing some initial tests ,i'm quiet pleased with the results .judge for yourselves .it was sharpness in the eye that was bothering me before

These look mighty good from my seat. :) Isn't it amazing how that kind of thing can give you the pit in the stomach feeling? I'm glad you got it worked out!

couple more from today to prove it wasn't a fluke ,will have another play with the M/A later in the weekend to see if i can improve it further .at least its stopped me in my tracks as i was about to buy another camera .sometimes the obvious needs to slap you in the face before the penny drops .i must add i really do love the i.q you get from posting images to this site to .

I 'm curios. What method of calibration did you use.

Ken-

I do mine in camera ,if you do it in lens then change bodies it will be all wrong .
I have a triangular measuring scale , set it up inside the house ,I set the tripod up in our hall and focus down the length of the kitchen the scale is set up at the far end ,I ensure the tripod is level and at roughly the same height as the scale ,
The camera is set in one shot ,lens wide open ,I.s off ,I use my gimbal head on tripod but it's locked down virtually solid . Start by aiming at centre of target take a few shots for consistance and then remove card and Check on computer screen .,
It should be obvious right away whether your back or front focussing ,if its front as mine was then you have to move focus back + increments so then take 4 shots at plus 5 ,four shots at plus ten ,and four shots at plus 15 .remove card and check again on computer it will again be obvious which is in focus at zero .if for instance it's plus ten that looks best ,the do further sets at plus 8,9,11,12 one of them should come out as sharpest and slap you in the face .
Leave that setting in the camera and then go out and take some shots on real time subjects to ensure it's right ,with me I found that +8 looked good but in practise +9 is slightly sharper .
Hope this explains it better .

The prince of Spruce Creek--or a guess this is a prince rather than a princess. A birder can correct me. I simply like the way it looks in B&W--but nothing wrong with the golden hour color version.
