Focus Pyramid Autofocus Lens Calibration Tool is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely ALL you need to properly calibrate The focus pyramid is all I recommend to other photographers when I am asked what they should use to help calibrate their lenses. It is made of cardboard and is nothing more than a folder pyramid, but the chart, angle, and simplicity of not only setting it up, but also bringing it with you when you travel makes it an excellent product. The other options are more money and you simply dont need anything more to calibrate your lenses. I wrote an article on SLR Lounge here about how I use it: http://www.slrlounge.com/calibrate-lenses-simple-fix-blurry-images/

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product with a significant savings I spent a lot of time reviewing similar products and communicating with friends who used the various products. Money was not the issue; however, accuracy ease of use and consistency where very important. I decided to buy from B&H because I knew the return policy. The Autofocus lens Calibration Tool by Focus Pyramid was my first ....and last trial. It was very simple to use, enabled me to correct a 70-300 Tamron lens that was back focusing and does not take much storage space. I highly recommend the Focus Pyramid and yes it is the least expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most new lenses could use a calibration My eyes are not so reliable right now and my photos looked off. I calibrate the lens to make sure it is working at its peak ability. It is highly recommended that all lenses be put through their paces to make sure what you put on your camera works like you expect it. Using the calibration tool helps me take better photos that can be enhanced by post processing, not fixed in post processing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens calibration tool, Excellent support. I was surprised that every one of my Nikon lenses needed calibration. It was very easy with the Focus Pyramid, which is pretty simple to use. I lost the instructions between when I bought it and my most recent use. I emailed the company and got a very prompt response with the instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Calibration Tool Calibrate several lenses within a reasonable amount of time. Pretty simple card that is probably overpriced, but itis worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth It's Price I bought this instead of purchasing a more expensive option. I'd used the Spyder Lens Cal in the past with fantastic results. That said, what appealed to me was this was less than half the cost. Big Mistake!! I was extremely dissapointed in the build quality of this product. It's extremely thin cardboard. It's so light in fact that it would be slide sideways when some one opens the door from across the room. Even bracing it, it still moved around ever so slightly. Additionally, it appears to me this was made to be used once or twice before falling apart. So if your intention is to have a product you can use over time this is certianly not for you. Most importantly, the results from this is only okay, but do not match the results I got from the Spyder LensCal tool. The lenses I dialed in with the Spyder before are heads and tails above the results this is yeilding. B&H has been very kind to accept the return on this product. They are great despite my dissatisfaction with this product. Bottom line. If this were priced about a 1/3 it's current price it might be worth buying for the average person wanting to tighten up his or her lens focusing. But for it's current price... This product is not worth what you pay for. For anyone who is serious about their focus... This is NOT the tool for you. Going to take the $$ from the return and put it toward a Spyder Lens Cal as I know I can get excellent results from it. Lesson learned. You get what you pay for... And sometimes, you get even less than that.
