Auto focus absolute step size

Hi

If everything remains consistent from the flattener/af/scope. Is the step size consistent when using different cameras or do I need an auto focus profile with different step sizes for each camera I want to use?

Cheers

Largely yes but that does sometimes change a little when you're moving from cameras with vastly difference pixel sizes. Under most normal circumstances you're fine though

Thanks Atmos...

It's what I suspected and was hoping i could do it once for one camera sensor and apply it to the other sensor. (But makes perfect sense why it wouldnt be the case).
But alas my pixel sizes will be 1/4 of the size on the new cam
