I have to share recent experience.
Been shooting indoor basketball for a while. I do alot of special rec and Special Olympics. Highschool. College.
Results have been ok. Keeper rate not as high as I might like, but ok. Working on technique. Tweaked the equipment a bit. Practice. My lenses of choice are a 30mm siggy, a 50mm siggy, and an 85mm canon. It's challenging environment.
When I moved up to a 7d, I did the microadjust thing - printed the target, and the tape, and tinkered with it a bit. Several times. Results were - well, indeterminate.
Last week, on a podcast, I heard someone mention focustune, as their "pick of the week". It's software to help you optimize (among other things) the MA of you lenses. I'm aware of other products, but frankly I'm cheap. this was 30 bucks, so I downloaded it over the weekend, and spent a couple hours tuning the 3 lenses I mentioned above. All 3 needed a tweak, according to the analysis, from -12 to +5.
Shot a BBall game Tuesday night.
What a difference. Focus is a little touching with an indoor, fast-moving game, with crappy lighting anyway. I had attributed my issues to that. What a difference. I mostly shot with the 50 - i was having a good time. sharper, Clearer. Best 30 bucks I ever spent. Easily.
It is not my intention to be a shill for focustune, but rather, a shill for microadjusting your lenses. For me, it took focustune to get it right. For you - manually, via this or another product, or a professional service. You've got this neat feature on your camera (maybe). Find a way to use it and get the most out of your gear.
That being said - I liked this product. I haven't used others.
