One other comment is that it's pretty difficult to MF this lens accurately at infinity. It's FBW and when in MF mode a distance scale comes up in the VF, but if you rack it over to infinity it goes past and blurs a little, but it's then laggy and seems to "pause" as you turn it back. I ran these tests 2x with what I saw as "best" focus in the center and got different results both times on both sets (the best are showed here).

Even though I corrected the copy emailed to me I was notified yesterday another copy is on it's way. May as well try it, due here next Tuesday ... 3rd time's the

mcbroomf--

Can you explain a bit the process you are using to test the lenses for poor corners, etc.? Why the diagonal shots?

Thanks.

A belated update that the 3rd copy wasn't any better than the 2nd. Generally poor on 3 corners, not as bad as the worst corner on 1st copy, but not a lens for WO astro.

I noticed that the 14mm XP F2.4 Rokinon is slated for arrival on Jan 12th so I ordered one (Canon to use with an MB4 or MC-11) and will update in a new thread.

I just picked up a copy yesterday from Adorama. Gonna give it some testing in the next few days. So far it doesnt look bad from what i've had a chance to shoot.
