In Topic: Major frustrations with a new D800 Focus seems soft

25 December 2013 - 06:11 PM

At the very least you need something like Lens Align to calibrate every lens to that particular body. The amount of AF fine tune you need will vary for each lens, with zooms you will need to choose a compromise as the amount of AF fine tune required varies with focal length usually. I think we only have one lens that requires no AF fine tune, but some require as much as -18.

There's no shortcut to doing this yourself and you can learn from Google how to do it.  We also use Focus Tune, but for most purposes I think Lens Align is enough.

Perhaps Nauticam will make a housing and adapter for this to work with a Nikonos 15mm lens - which would be a handy size even if the corners are no better.

If you decide you want rectilinear rather than fisheye, I have the Nikon 12-24 $450, and the Sigma 8-16 $550, for sale.

I can separate the dome and Nauticam 10mm extension with screws if desired. The dome is 8" cast acrylic and in perfect condition. (The base will have saw marks if I cut if off, but it can be glued onto any acrylic base set up for fisheye or rectilinear. The 10mm extension with screws may suffer cosmetically from being extracted from the acrylic, but the surfaces that matter will be perfect. Make an offer!
