The differences are listed on their web site.  Price is lower and it comes apart for flat shipping.  Otherwise nothing really earth shaking.  The old one seems to be sturdier and has an adjustable ruler, but nothing which would make the new one give more accurate results.

I agree with you on the differences. I won't "upgrade" but the lower price is nice for potential customers.

Got one and loving it! I got the one that comes in a flat envelope, it is quite easy to set it up - and at first looks like its made of cardboard...but, it is quite sturdy and very accurate. I thought my lenses were accurate before, but found it to be otherwise. All of my lenses needed a bit of adjustment...it is quite easy to use as well. It has become a "must have" tool in the photographer's toolkit.

What's it actually made from? So, is there any difference between using a tool like this and a moire pattern on your monitor? Is either one more accurate?

I would go out on a limb and say that both techniques are accurate. The Lens Align Mark II is easier and faster to get accurate results. It looks like its made of plastic and looks die cut.

why is it an advantage to have something portable - why would one have to perform an adjustment for a lens more than once?

It could be useful when using someone else's (or a rental) lens on location.

Cheers,

I have just shot tests from -20 to +20 fine tune and picked the best, are these things really needed?

I have the lens align MkII, it does make the calibration a little less hit and miss, IMO.  I've used all sorts of calibration techniques, too.  That said, the thing does strike me as overpriced for what it is.
