Testing my EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Jun 3, 2012

Hi,

I have just received my Canon EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens and have read about varying quality control and 'good' lenses versus ones that are de-centered, etc.

Is there a standard way of testing a lens at home to check that this one is a 'good' one. I have taken a heap of photos with it over the last few days, some seem good others less so. I would like a more objective way to test the lens so that I can be confident that the lens is doing its bit and that the stuff ups are at my end. The lens is on a new 600D.

Thanks,

Scott.
