Canon AF micro adjust

Most of the latest wave of high end digital SLR's from Canon come with an auto focus micro adjust feature. This feature allows you to tweak the operation of the AF system when a particular lens is attached to the camera to (hopefully) improve AF performance for that lens if it has a problem.

Many of the popular photography web site forums are buzzing with discussions about lens calibration and AF micro adjust, so I wanted to post a link here to what seems to be the most popular technique for performing AF micro adjust on your lenses.

Here is the link to the Northlight Images web site article with the adjusting technique.

It takes some time (and adequate distance for long lenses!) to run through this procedure, so set aside enough time to complete the process start to finish. It requires some patience but it seems to pay off in the end for many people...
