See, you know the pain. We just focus and correct based on whatever camera is in our hands. I wish there were a standard for this. :-) I'd like to think PULL means bring it closer, and PUSH means move the focus further out. Since it's almost always left-hand driven for focus it doesn't seem like a de facto standard wasn't apparent somewhere in the last 100 years or so. I guess that depends on if one thinks their thumb is dominant or not. Don't get me wrong, I use Nikon stuff all the time and I'm a big proponent, but I think their focus direction choice is intuitively/kinesthetically backwards. That being said it's usually a localized adaptation thing - after a few shots one gets in the flow.
