I've not used it because all my lenses are dead on accurate without the need to adjust.

I tested all my lenses but only the 35L needed an adjustment (I used Lens Align).

I use it on all my lenses and it does make a positive impact. The downside is that there has been occassions in which a MA setting one day, doesn't work the next.

You must have some very bad luck to have bought all bad lenses :confused:

This is why i asked ...I read a 1dmk111 CFn user guide not by Canon that seems very good and is does state that there are several factors that will make this vary in accuracy after you have applied it but i suppose it;s all part of the learning process....

That has nothing to do with it. It's the difference between 'in spec' and 'spot on'.

LensAlign is a focusing tool that helps you calibrate your lenses. Google it. It's costly, but worth it. There's also a free version on PTON made by member TeamSpeed if I remember correctly.

I've only ever seen one lens that wasn't dead on without any adjustment (a rented 600 L). Maybe I'm just lucky.

Im not using it but only because I don't feel like I have an accurate way of doing it yet, and I don't really trust myself.
