    Mital,

    just to get you on the road a little bit quicker. But you have to test it with your own equipment too!

    Use Badders link for LRS and for the rest This one from John: http://www.johnhpanos.com/epcalib.htm

    D300s NN5 LRS 60, NN3 61

    17-55/f2.8 NN5 17 140, 20 134, 24 128, 28 124, 35 199, 45 115, 55 115. 45 / 55 setting is the same.

    Pleasure, but check the settings with your equipment today and stitch.

    There might be differences in equipment.
