Anyone know how good this product is?
Is it easy to use?

I have the LensAlign Mk2, and it is pretty easy to use. The biggest challenge is finding a room big enough to get 25-50x the focal length of the lens being tested (try 20-40 feet for a 250mm lens!). Doing it outside is only good on windless, sunny days...

I've also used it with the FocusTune software, and that makes finding the right AF adjustment amount very, very easy!

Oh, and I've also used the "focus on a screen pattern" method to determine AF adjustment, and the LensAlign method is much, much easier (and probably more accurate, since there's a ruler to look at).

A great tool and quite easy to use especially for dSLR cameras. As Panoguy says, getting the room may be a challenge with some lenses. I have even used mine to double check focus problems with rangefinder lenses as well, just not quite as easy to do.
