My own idiosyncratic lens testing criteria

When I get a lens, particularly an expensive one, I test it the way I will display it at its largest size.  I print it on my Canon ip8720 at 13x19 inches (the largest I can print) and look at it at the viewing distance of the hypotenuse, which is the closest the distance a print should be viewed by someone with 20/20 vision.  In this instance, the minimum viewing distance is 23 inches.

I look at it under good light and if it looks good to me, it's done.

I understand this is just my standard, but it has never let me down.

Since I just traded my EF 24-105 f4.0L ii and RF 24-105 STM for the RF 24-105 f4.0L I will print one when I shoot one I really like and see how it fairs.  Just shot a few with it so far.  So far, so good.

Note: I made the trade not due to any dissatisfaction with the IQ of either lens;  My EF 24-105 f4.0L was gathering dust because it is front heavy and ungainly on my RP and if I traded it, I might as well trade the RF STM since it would duplicate the zoom range.  I highly recommend the STM for those on a budget or who need the lightest RF option in this zoom range.
