Lens testing setup

Nobody buys expensive cameras and lenses to take pictures of a wall or test patterns, but they do give us an idea of what a lens camera combo is capable of.

We chose a  distance of about 8 feet which is a common portrait distance with a combination of test patterns and magazine pages.  The light source is a 5 x 65w CFL 6500k setup.

The camera is on a Markins Ball head and Gitzo carbon fiber tripod.
