For years, LensAlign MkII has been the proven Focus Calibration System preferred by hundreds of professional photographers for its simplicity of design and structural integrity. LensAlign uses your camera's menu-based AF fine-tune function to match each of your lenses precisely to the camera body. You don’t have to settle for out-of-the-box performance from your lenses. You can now make them as sharp as they can be. Now we are proud to announce a new generation of LensAlign, the result of our extensive research and testing with the latest AF systems on the market, using the latest calibration software.
Bring your lenses back to life.
DSLR autofocus systems may not be as precise as you think. Manufacturing tolerances often result in subtle mismatches between camera bodies and lenses, resulting in poor autofocus performance. This can cause your images to be softer than they should be. Every maker of hi-end DSLRs acknowledges this by providing auto-focus adjustment capabilities right in their camera’s menu systems.
LensAlign MkII is the proven solution that offers accurate and repeatable calibration for each of your lenses. Photographers can use LensAlign to determine if the auto-focus system of their camera is working properly with each and every lens. In other words, using LensAlign, one can assess whether a specific camera body and lens combination is capable of attaining the maximum sharpness for that pairing. And if not, LensAlign is the premiere solution for determining the best setting in your camera's auto-focus adjustment menu.
Introducing the Long Ruler Kit
The Long Ruler Kit allows LensAlign to used at greater distances, and better accommodate specialized lenses, such as super-telephotos. It is comprised of a 32-inch, collapsable Focus Display Ruler, as well as a larger FocusTarget. The Long Ruler Kit can be purchased as part of our new LensAlign MkII Plus system, which includes a LensAlign MkII along with the Long Ruler Kit. It can also be purchased seperately and added to any existing LensAlign MkII.
Now, You Are In Control
In the past, the solution for mis-matched lenses was to send your camera body and lens to the manufacturer or repair facility to have them calibrated together. This can be expensive and time consuming. Having your own LensAlign MkII gives you the ability to make the adjustments you need to achieve the full sharpness your lenses are capable of.
An integral part of of the world’s first integrated autofocus calibration system.
Our new LensAlign is the result of years of testing in connection with the development of FocusTune, our revolutionary AF calibration software. As we studied the various factors that affect the camera’s AF system, we adjusted both the software and hardware, to optimize them for each other. Our research proved that in order to achieve the highest levels of accuracy, a truly integrated autofocus calibration system was required -LensAlign Fusion is that total system. Accordingly, LensAlign’s new ruler and target reflect our findings, making the process when integrated with FocusTune, faster and more accurate than was previously thought possible.

They’re all important photographs; sometimes there's only one chance to get them. And capturing that magic moment is tremendously challenging. So you don’t want anything to let you down. And certainly not your focus system. You demand accurate focus from your DSLR and expensive glass – after all that is what you paid for. You need that shot to be sharp. But many times that just isn’t the case. But if it ain't sharp, you lost the game and the job and the next job.
Even on great products like your cameras and lenses, manufacturing tolerances can add or subtract from accurate focus performance. But before you can fix the problem, you have to accurately and conveniently measure any focus deviation. Now you can. LensAlign™ is a hardware-based precision focus analysis tool. Photographers and camera repair facilities can use LensAlign to determine whether or not the focus system of the camera (auto and/or manual) is working properly with with each and every lens. In other words, using LensAlign, one can assess whether or not the specific camera body and lens are capable of eliciting the maximum sharpness for that pairing. Having a LensAlign system in your studio or home is like owning a factory-like calibration system providing quick, accurate and repeatable results.
And now, when used with LensAlign, many of the latest DSLRs allow you to adjust the auto-focus for each lens you own using their menu accessible Micro Adjustment or AF Tune feature.
