Is there anywhere to send Minolta lenses in for focus calibration? Will Sony calibrate Minolta lenses? Any idea on how much this might cost. Thanks!

What do you mean? Doesn't the camera adjust the lens until it senses that it's in focus?

you might have to go the specialist route with a local camera repair for calibration. I doubt Sony would do it.

He means collimation.
