Hi all -
With the recent launch of the Alpa FPS, I think there's going to be a lot more people interested in finding out about suitable/interesting lenses to combine with cameras such as the Alpa and the HCam. Of particular interest I'm sure will be image circles and sharpness.
So, I thought it would be useful to have a single thread, where people can share their experiences with various combinations.
Kicking off, here's a link to my testing of the Canon 24 TS-E on the HCam and with an IQ180, which I have posted previously in another thread.

I don't have the time to do tests like that for all the lenses that I manage to get hold of, but here are a couple of other examples that hopefully give a good indication of image circles.
Next week, I'll try to find some time to post some 100% crops from these, so that you can get an idea as to lens quality.
Canon 200-400mm zoom at 200, 300 and 400mm:
Canon 200-400mm zoom, with the inbuilt 1.4x teleconverter at 280mm and 560mm. Note the significant improvement in the image circle:
Not the easiest of combinations to focus, but I almost got it
More soon hopefully, and look forward to others adding more!
