Re: Comparing Fish-Eyes : Rokinon 7.5mm vs Zuiko 8mm (FOV and look)

One more question Anders,

I plan to get the lens soon and I know you had some troubles finding a good copy. I think I'll get it from a local shop (320 euros seems to be the price in the Netherlands) and try more than one copy. Except for the misalignment test (taking an image at wide aperture in regular landscape orientation and then upside down to compare corners and the horizontal edges) is there anything else specific to test?

I guess it would be better to test it when focus is set to infinity (not relying on the focus ring's marks that can be inaccurate) since this is how I'm going to use the lens.

Thanks!
