I have done no focus fine tuning on the 70/200 V2.
70/200 f2.8 AF-S VRII lens at f3.5, 200mm and 5-foot from subject.
I focused on the split of wood as shown by the arrow.
Just to the left of focus point the stub sticking
out is 1" in front of focus point and the stub just
below is about 1" behind the focus point.
Focus is dead on the money at this distance.
