    LensAlign® or DIY alternative?

    Does anyone own a LensAlign calibration system

    http://www.whibalhost.com/lensalign/purchase.html

    or had a go at a DIY alternative?

    How much were your lenses out by? Did you adjust only primes or zooms as well?

    Yes, I micro adjust. The same lenses on the K-7 are slightly different on the K-5

    I have a lens AlignPro. I wasn't happy with my 600/4. I simply could get sharp images when using my 1.4x extender. I found that the 600 + 1.4x was front focussing which explains my issues. I dialed in +2.

    Now my birds are razor sharp

    It was when you posted the link!! I had a look and downloaded the pdf. Today the link is gone and replaced with a Buy Now @ 99c. Pretty good value really, but there are free options.
