I can't wait to see the images from these babies...
Awesome work - can't wait to see the results
Thanks Matt D and Evin - That was a good day and we accomplished a huge amount of testing.
Here's what we did:
Matt Duclos Projected each lens on the Duclos lens projector - looked at distortion, center and edge resolution, contrast and for presence of CA we also had a look at
the lenses mechanics, for image shift, zoom tracking, and backlash in the focus mechanism.
Evin shot each lens in a similar frame of a model at f2.8 in open shade. We varied the distance as appropriate for each focal length.
I shot an interior shot at 5000k, there are a variety of mid ground objects, some background objects the usual xmas lights, and a foreground expanded metal grill.
After shooting a few seconds of the mid ground we racked front to back, then did a flare test by moving a bare lightbulb on a bamboo pole around in the frame. Lenses were shot wide open and at 2.8.
We did our best when possible to make direct comparisons between lenses of a particular focal length.... Not changing camera position or lighting between lens changes. The shutter was used instead of ND to vary exposure for different stops.
Jarred loaned us a prototype Red Nikon mount which worked great and has the same tensioning ring that the EF mount has. Nice guy, nice Piece of gear.
