Received Focus Tool and used it to match my new Nikon D800 with a 50mm F1.4g lens. High quality print and pyramid angle helped identify focus shift between f1.4 and f2.8 thus able to tune lens to a sweet spot for the main aperture i use.Many thanks, Worth every penny. Alan R. —==— I like the Focus Pyramid a lot – its quick, easy and helpful. I just bought a used Nikon D3 and spend just a few minutes running through my four lenses to make the micro-adjustments for that body. The Focus Pyramid takes just a few minutes to set up and there are no complicated aiming and sighting requirements. Robert R. —==— I have used the Focus Pyramid once so far, to calibrate my Sony 70-400 lens with the Sony A77 at the maximum zoom distance. It certainly was a lot quicker and easier than previous attempts at focus adjustments, I am really happy with the product. Peter D. —==— I recalibrated all my lenses last night only to find that 1 was ok, all the others needed some adjustment. I’m glad that your product helped me in achieving this goal. Roger H. —==— The focus pyramid has become an essential part of my photography toolkit. It is fast, accurate and critical to getting tack sharp pictures. I was able to micro-adjust 6 lenses over lunch with this wonderful tool. Being portable, I’ll be taking the focus pyramid with me to make sure that my lenses are correctly adjusted no matter where I shoot. The focus pyramid is easy to setup, the online instructions are clear, simple to understand and a great way to get the most out of your camera and lenses. It’s a bargain at twice the price. I set up the pyramid in my living room, connected my camera to my laptop and used tethered shooting in Lightroom. Zooming in to 3x I was able to easily see where my lenses were auto focusing. Setting the microadjustment level on my Canon 5DII, I was able to quickly dial in the right focus point. Make sure you have plenty of light on the pyramid and, as the online video shows, position your camera level and at the right distance and start shooting. You will easily see where your particular camera and lens pair are auto focusing. My pictures are noticeably sharper after just a couple of minutes. Compared to some of the competing products, the focus pyramid is much easier to set up, use and still have the level of accuracy we all desire. Thanks! Eric L. —==— The focus pyramid arrived today, and after a long editing session, I put my cameras and lenses on the tripod, and shot away. AF Fine tuning the D700 was easy in Lightroom 4, but it does not yet support tethered capture for my new D800, so I did the fine tuning the long way instead. The results made interesting reading. I have 4 lenses: the 50 F1.4G, 24-70 F2.8, 105 F2.8VR and 70-200 F2.8 VR II.The 24-70 has just recently returned from Nikon after a service, and it turned in the best performance on both cameras – No adjustment needed on the D700, and -3 on the D800.
The 105 F2.8 VR: Not bad.. -2 on the D700, but -14 on the D800.
70-200 F2.8 VR II: +4 on the D700, -12 on my D800.
The 50 F1.4G: -8 on the D700, and I went to -20 on the D800.I am looking forward to better performance from my D800 in future, especially with all those megapixels.
I never dreamt in my wildest dreams that my lenses/ cameras were anything other than perfect- I always put down out of focus images to my own poor technique.
Buying the focus pyramid has proved a revelation. Thanks a million- I’ll pass on the good news! C.Kelly
