"LensAlign is the only solution that allows fast, accurate, and repeatable results that confirm and/or calibrate the auto-focus of all of your lens/body combinations"

It will be announced tomorrow. Essentially it is a device for accurately and unequivocally checking whether or not your lens back or front focuses and by how much so you can either not buy it, return it, send it to the service center or do the micro-adjustment in cameras with that capability. So fro the latter it would be the Pentax K20D, the latest Nikons and Canons and the new Sony full frame DSLR.

It's not software, it just uses the software and/ firmware supplied with the camera.

There's several movies that explain everything! What's in the move is beyond what I can even disclose until the NDA is lifted. However the movies will be much more helpful. The password and link is on the OPF thread.

50D Micro-adjustment / LensAlign

I am interested to see if 50D owners are planning to purchase this new product from rawworkflow.com:

LensAlignexternal link

I performed a micro adjustment on my lenses using the process found here:
http://blog.willshootp​hotography.com/2008/10​/canon-50d-af-mi.htmlexternal link

It seemed to work pretty well, but was wondering if the LensAlign might work better.

Thanks for any insight.

$80 for the light version, $140 for the pro version. Is kinda steep.

Someone else will develop a DYI knockoff, give them a few weeks. This guy is charging a lot of money, no?

$80-140 is in absolute terms, expensive indeed. cant argue that.
(but relative to all your L's... is it ?)

Those "reviews" look a lot like endorsements to me. And the pricing? Good luck.
