Can you please return my LOST gloves
Are both the grandchildren and the lab slow?
Maggie, I'm just so charmed by those gloves. Simple yet filled with mystery and stories.
Great seeing and realization....
Well, I think I got a lens that doesn't focus right. Is it backfocus when the actual focus point seems to be farther away from the point that is focused on in the camera? That's what I think is going on.
Here is the fastest, sloppiest and quite possibly most lame lens test ever. I am no Sean Reid. You were warned: http://web.mac.com/maggie_osterberg/...st_Import.html
OK, since the iWeb pix are so damned small, let me post a bigger pair here, via Flickr:
35mm CV Nokton Test f 11
35mm CV Nokton Test f 1.4
M8 DNGs, processed in LightZone. I did the last batch in the new version of Capture One and it made me think the lens was horribly soft all over and not in a good way. Looking at the files in LightZone, they look a bit better, but I still think the focus might be off a touch. Not as sure now, as there are more distinct sharp areas in the LZ files.
Maybe I'll just send this lens back, I dunno. Kinda bummed. But that might just be the long day, the late hour and hormones. Feh.
I'm no Sean Reid, either. I hate lens testing, but when I got my new Noctilux, it was obviously backfocusing a bit. I tested by lining up yogurt containers on a diagonal line. That way you can see the label on all of them. Focus on the middle containers label, and it becomes quite obvious. I suggest that you must use a tripod to be sure. Put the M8 on timer mode to make sure their is no vibration. Jack's sidewalk method works, too.
I hope you get this all sorted out.
