Have you gone though and micro adjusted each one of your lenses?  Did you see noticeable improvements?

Oooh yes, Nick.

If you mean AF Fine Tune then yes…
16 lenses and 4 bodies = 64 AF FT.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Many lenses require tuning on each body. Having learned this, I now check each lens that comes into the house, and verify that it behaves properly on the cameras. Especially important when shooting wide open.

It's not hard. Go outside, sit down and find a spot on the ground. Using single-point focus, take a shot of that spot. Pixel peep and see how you did. Adjust, reshoot, reassess, repeat.

It usually takes me a dozen shots or so to dial it in.

My budget rules out any big lenses. So I have not needed this with my Canon 50D, even though it does have the feature
