Nikon Calibration

[N]ikon allow calibration of their high end amateur and pro spec bodies by way of an AF Fine Tune control. Unfortunately, Nikon do not allow for calibration settings to be applied to both ends of a zoom lens separately. As with earlier Canon models we will calibrate for both ends of a zoom lens and apply either the middle value or the value deemed suitable for the focal length regarded as most important or commonly used.

 

 

Example:

If calibrating a Nikon D7200 with an AF-S 70-200mm F2.8, and the values calculated are + 2 at 70mm and + 9 at 200mm we will choose + 5 or 6 as a middle value or + 9 if the user intends using this end of the focal length.

Nikon Calibration Test Report

Please note – Test results – Before & After may not initially show vast improvements. This is often due to the fact the lenses do not always resolve the optimum quality when used wide open as in the maximum aperture. Significantly sharper images can be obtained by stopping the lens to a smaller aperture

If during the test, we find this to be the case we will record images at smaller images to demonstrate that sharper images can be obtained by taking comparison shots before and after calibration.

We also offer a lens optimum test in which we can identify the best aperture in which to shoot at (often referred as the lens sweet spot) and the point at which diffraction occurs.
