Nikon 50mm1.4G Focus Fine Tune Correction?

I just purchased a used 50mm 1.4G & have not been blown away by the focus performance on my D200. I am trying it on a friends D300 which has focus fine tune & it appears to require -15 to get it right.
Just wondering how many others are needing to use correction on this lens?
I had hoped to avoid this problem by buying the Nikon over the Sigma.
Will probably need to send it in to have it adjusted if I am to have it work correctly on my D200.

I briefly owned a 50G that needed a +12, otherwise wide open it was blurry. To be fair, I also had a Sigma 50 that needed -18. I had to return both. You should give it a try on another body... it can have a focus issue on your D200 and then completely fine on a different body.
