Camera Labs has never impressed me and I wonder as do others if LensTip got a bad copy. Their sample shots don't look anything like what others have posted.

Actually the one thing I like about Camera Labs is that they are one of the only sites that consistently test lenses at infinity (with their 'unremarkables' shots). These are fantastic if one is trying to choose a landscape lens.

Hi, the only problem with infinity shots is the role that atmospheric effects can have on the image. I've noticed many time that CameraLabs "unremarkables" seem hazy at distance. Where I live (Arkansas) it is a rare day when the atmosphere is truly clear. I like to shoot C130s as they fly right overhead and I have learned to not even think about it unless it is one of those rare days as I will be disappointed by the results.
