LensAlign LA-LA2 Overview

The MkII Focus Calibration System from LensAlign uses your camera's menu-based auto focus fine-tune function to match each of your lenses auto focus systems to your camera body for precise focusing. The MkII assembles into a system that offers a dual-sided focus target and a focus display ruler.

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 (or lack thereof) on the display ruler. 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.

The MkII is the second generation calibration tool from LensAlign and is built of sturdy card stock and 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 LensAlign MkII target features a front sighting plate with precision focus target and TPA sighting ports. The rear sighting plate on the target provides additional parts of the TPA sighting system.
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.
True Parallel Alignment is the basis that provides visual verification of perfect camera positioning during AF calibration. The orientation of your camera is essential for accurate analysis and adjustment of the camera's auto-focus systems.
The MkII system disassembles easily for storage and travel.

what is the suggested distance to place the tool from your camera and does that vary for each size lens?
Asked by: Larry
I tried a range of distances, all as suggested by the accompanying materials and quite frankly found very limited use of their system. Focus adjustments were not at all clearly indicated by multiple attempts to key in on just the right combination of adjustments for each lens/body combination I tried. It seems the inventor tried to build 'a better mousetrap' but failed. I abandoned using it quickly as a waste of time. The idea/concept is good but the execution or implementationn is dubious.

Can I use LensAlign with the Tamron Tap-in Console to adjust my 18-400 lens?
Asked by: Donald
The Tamron TAP-In Console is for use with the Tamron TAP-In Utility Software. If using the LensAlign MkII Focus Calibration System, the micro adjustment for AF in your particular camera would be used to calibrate the lens.

Does a Nikon D7200 have lens adjustment? I think it does. Has anyone used this to adjust a lens with the Nikon D7200 and was it worth the cost? I have never really had a focus issue until I began using an older Nikon 80 200 2.8 which is known to back focus.
Asked by: Lorraine
Yes the Nikon D7200, does allow for lens adjustment. When one looks at the reviews on the LensAlign MkII Focus Calibration System Web page. One can see it is worth using for fine tuning lens focus.

question

Do the Nikon bodies D800, D810, and D750 offer lens calibration adjustment? If so, do I find this in the menus? Thanks!
Asked by: Laura
Yes... all have fine tune... you find it in your setup menu (the little wrench symbol) and scroll down... it is fourth or fifth item from the bottom. Make sure you research all about how to do it or you can really mess up your shooting... and you have to fine tune your lens t your most common working distance and focal length because critical focus varies with these variables.
