I'm definitely going to keep it.
I focused on the red star on the Heineken. I was looking into the Tap as well. Have you used it?
I thought so. Yeah, you might wanna invest in the tap. It's capable of making a world of difference at some focal lengths and distances,... if you feel your copy needs the help at those focal lengths and distance. But like 05Xrunner says, it's a bit of work, but worth it. Yeah, I've used the tap on my copy and I'm telling you man, there is a dizzying number of approaches and methods. I've been thru just about all of them, save the methods requiring the purchase of expensive targets and software. Started out with DotTune,... pretty good, but time consuming. Even though the video says 5 minutes. I've tried using slanted targets, flat targets and lined up a row of AA batteries as a DYI target. I will say all the methods I used were pretty good and they all had their pros and cons. In the end, I just used the Tap to default my copy and just started shooting over a period of days. Took lots of shots of grass and paid close attention to where I started loosing focus in front and in back of the focus point. When I thought I was getting front or back focus, I made the adjustment in camera and started real world shooting again. A day or so later, I used the Tap to move the adjustment from camera to lens. Did this for all focal lengths and distances over a period of weeks. Kinda let thing fall into place instead of trying to calibrate everything in one session. Seems to work better for me, it might be because the resulting calibration matches my shooting style a little better. Anyway,... I highly recommend the Tap.
