Here is another thread about both products. There is a link to a review of LensTune.

My take would be that LensAlign and LensTune make an easy combination and accomplish 80% of what you would get with FoCal.

Focal is much more sophisticated in terms of the results and the decisions you can make, but it is also much more time consuming and complicated to use. I don't think I have seen anyone who is using FoCal successfully that prefers a different tool. But I have seen people give up on FoCal due to the complexity and limited documentation.

Here's a link to a poll on how much time members are spending on testing. The high end is generally from users of FoCal - but that was before LensTune was released.
