JUst been trying to fine tune the AF with Dot Tune, not getting anywhere. According to the video explaning the procedure the green focusing dot is what to work on. No matter how I adjust the fine tuning either + or - from O nothing happens.

A relative a weakness of Dot Tune of is that the link to a suggested autofocus target is to an autofocuses target most of which consists of detail which your camera instruction book cautions may cause poor focus accuracy
That aside your camera instruction book says fine tune is not normally required, and using it may affect either infinity or minimum focus ability.
Have you any reason to believe your camera or lens is not working right when used in accordance with Nikon's guidance on how to get good results using autofocus?
Thank you for your reply.
I read the camera instruction regarding fine tuning and only wanted to check the lens calibration out. I had no intention of altering anything. Dot Tune was free so I thought why not give it a try.

Not saying that you are guilty of it, but there seems to be a growing obsession with "checking things out", almost as if we expect things to be wrong with our cameras even if we have to hunt for the evidence..
My philosophy is that, unless I can see a problem in my photographs, my camera is working fine and I don't need to go looking for problems that don't affect me. I have never yet had to use the AF fine-tune on any of my Nikon cameras.
