Like I said, there was no cherry picking. The Speed Booster is my one and only personal sample. I've had it since last summer, and it was given to me - I didn't buy it. It was selected at random from the normal production run. I purchased all the other focal reducers online, just one sample of each.

The primary result of sample variation is uneven corner performance due to tilted and/or decentered lens elements. This is why I took the trouble to show all four corners and both sides in my 100% crops. This ensures that you don't just show the worst corner or the best corner etc. This helps to prevent sample variation from degrading the value of the test.

Thank you.  I was simply  asking how the test subjects were obtained.  That's the info I was looking for.
