Re: Here are samples to settle this!

In fact what is far more important is the fact that at 35mm there is major lens correction that needs to happen. This causes the corners to become very soft @ 35mm.

What is amazing is that at 100mm this lens has almost no distortion at all. The corners look a lot better than they do at 35mm.

Here are two samples that show uncorrected images. Can you guess which one is at 35mm by just looking at the pictures?

Sure, severe barrel distortion on the first image. Must be the shortest end, 35mm.

Also, original size in gallery is 1919×1080. Is this zoom intended for two megapixel camera?

Just kidding. Decent zoom, for sure.
