Just got the lens from Amazon for easy returns which I've already done. Hopefully next one will be better or are my expectations unreasonable? Please post your experience with this new lens.





A7r handheld 1/60. less distortion, sharp center.







center crop 1300px wide. would be even sharper with tripod.







right side crop 1300px wide. (left side not so bad)

Hey David. You may want to test the next one a little more carefully. I would suggest using a tripod with a distant landscape type shot, tilted method. Shooting as close as you did to your test subject is not really the most reliable method. What aperture did you shoot these with? I assume you used AF? Focused where?

AF center f=2.8 because planning to use primarily for astrophotography. I'll take your advice on next one outside with tripod. What is the tilted method? Also need to test for coma and curvature.

got second copy from Amazon which did better on bookcase but was still unacceptable for stars in one corner. Stars turned into lines, but only in one corner. Also noted two reviews on B&H of poor image quality for this lens. Does anyone have positive review for using this lens for stars?
