The LensAlign MkII with FocusTune V4 Software from Lensalign includes the LensAlign MkII Generation 4 Focus Calibration System and FocusTune Version 4 Calibration Software for use with DSLRs featuring autofocus micro-adjustment. The MkII assembles into a system that offers a dual-sided focus target and a focus display ruler and works with the FocusTune software to provide accurate measurements and readings of the information.

The MkII is built of sturdy card stock and the display ruler of polystyrene, it assembles and disassembles easily for versatile long term use with any lens and with DSLR's equipped with auto focus adjustment capability. The 10.5" plastic Focus Display Ruler offers a choice of graphic display patterns on both sides (black with white numerals and white with black numerals) and is situated along the focus target at a 20º angle for optimized depth of field display.

To use, simply place the MkII on a table or use the integrated 1/4"-20 tripod mount to set the system on a tripod and with your DSLR on a second tripod, use the True Parallel Alignment feature to accurately align camera and target. With the aperture open as much as possible, focus your lens onto the target and see your lens's focus error on the display ruler. These images can then be used in the suite of tests included in FocusTune to provide you with accurate results.

Afterward, simply enter the data garnered into your camera's menu and it will adjust the auto focus to be precise and retain that information to be utilized each time you use that specific lens. This bundle includes license keys for both Mac and Windows and can be installed on 2 computers simultaneously.

    LensAlign MkII with FocusTune V4 Software is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for DSLR's If you are spending thousands for cameras and lenses, do yourself a favor, purchase this product and use it. Even high end cameras can come from the manufacturer withimprecise focusing. I recently purchased a D-810 which I couldn't get tack sharp focusing with the autofocus, on any of my lenses. As it turned out, with the help of this product, I foundthe micro-adjustment for my 24-70mm AF VR Nikon lens needed to be set at -13. Other lenses required similarly high settings. My D-800 was better, but also improved with minor adjustments. The best part is each body is tuned to each specific lens. Even a factory adjustment won't do that.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works. The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars is for the same reasons that prior reviewers have mentioned which is: the lack of instructions make it a bit cumbersome at first, but the online support you get straight through the FocusTune/Lensalign website is top notch and will get you up and running in no time. Other than that, I don't think it is too expensive and for those complaining about the price, I suggest you take the time to develop, design, test, and market such a product. Think it is too expensive? Don't buy it. I think that it is a fine value for the money and once you get into everything and see how it works, it's a fairly brilliant product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buyer Be Aware I have yet to fully utilize this product, but it has been well reviewed by many others as being the state of the art for AF fine tuning. My issue, and perhaps it was my oversight, is that the basic system is not usable for long lenses; one must buy a long focus ruler & larger target for an additional $ (even a 150mm lens requires the long ruler at only 20 feet!). So, the MkII with the FocusTune software ($) plus the additional ruler for long lenses cost $. $ is pretty expensive for cardboard. And, the descriptive materials for this product are not very explicit about the need for the longer ruler (again, perhaps my oversight).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great calibration tool Works as described to fine tune AF for lens/body combo. I set up my 100-400 and 70-200 on my 5D III. Setup is straightforward and easy. The calibration is somewhat time consuming. Calibrating both ends of both zooms took me about 2 1/2 hours. Things go quicker once you get the hang of it. The software works well and provides consistent calibration curves that are easy to decipher. The program has a utility look and feel to it, and it takes a few moments to figure it out, but it does the job as advertised. There are several tutorial videos on-line to get up and running.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed emotions I didn't find it hard to construct the MK11 as some others have, nor did I find it hard to understand how to use the product. I felt like the card stock was adequate. However, I chose the product based on being able to have the camera and the MK11 parallel. It was next to impossible to sight through a very small hole to another small hole behind. I gave up on that. Fortunately, the lens I tried were all focusing correctly, but that means I didn't need to use the software that came with the product. I could have saved a few bucks and bought a different product. But, I am satisfied with what I have.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lets me set the MFA on my 6D objectively I wish MTD would pack detailed written instructions with the product, rather than relying on the on-line isntructions. The quick set up for the LensAlign was adequate, but, some of the pictures were confusing. It took me (retired engineer) 5-10 minutes of staring at the parts to know which part went where - after it was obvious. The Fusion was a nice addition, but I had to print out a copy of the online instructions and watch his video several times to see how the thing works.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not really worth the cost, time and trouble I bought this after spending hours with many lenses and three bodies adjusting the Canon microfocus, using an old U.S. Navy focus target taped to the wall and multiple test shots at a range of adjustment settings and paging back and forth to find the sharpest. I thought this might be faster and more accurate. It is neither. Assembling the focus target was not difficult with the graphic assembly instructions included, but something tells me that if I don't find a place to store it fully assembled, it is going to be good for four or five assembly/disassembly sessions before it has had it. It is after all just thin cardboard. The FocusTune 4 software. Don't waste your money. Exceptionally complex and documentation for the software is the worst I have ever seen. No step by step, no explanation of terminology. Not even an explanation of error messages. Some FAQ's plus a few YouTube videos done by the author/creator are available, but they suffer the typical drawback of instructions by the creator: They assume you know what he knows. You are far better off to just take some shots and evaluate yourself. In the end, I think you'll get as good or better results and actually save time without the software. I can see why there is no trial version of the software...few would buy it. If you have a Canon DSLR with microadjust, do a search for instructions, and you'll find a simple procedure published by Canon. You'll save money and time.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pricey, Flimsy, No Instructions, Works The same as most folks have reported. A little expensive for what you get. A bit flimsy in construction. I will store mine assembled to preserve it's life. The lack of one definitive set of instructions is frustrating. Take a little bit from an on-line video and a little bit from on-line printable instructions (earlier version)... disregard the items that are a bit different. Finally it gets the job done. If you have plenty of funding... go for it. Not sure I would buy it again but I will not send it back.
