Michael Tapes, the entrepreneur who invented the “LensAlign Focus Calibration System” e-mailed me a few weeks back and said that he had a new product coming, but by reading the information I was under a NDA. However, many of the details of the LensAlign MkII, which replaces the LensAlign Lite (I reviewed the LensAlign Pro earlier this fall), are available on Michael’s blog. I just received a prototype yesterday, and will be writing a review of the new product and comparing it to its “bigger brother.” Final production versions will retail for $79.95 and will ship in the United States for $6 as it comes flat/disassembled to fit inside of a Priority Mail envelope. This conceivably means that it can be taken apart easily for travel, something the LensAlign Pro simply cannot do.
Stay tuned for more!
