Hello all
thought I would pick up on this thread from last year.
I am back in Australia and have set up the Canon 50mm f1.2 L lens and the ST8300. Given the expense of this lens, I expected super results, but instead, they are very disappointing.

I have tried the lens at the native f1.2, 1.4 and 1.6, and the off-axis aberrations are terrible.

I am not getting this? These results should be really good. Is it something to do with the size of the ST8300 chip? However, when I review Phil Hart's post, and I am now curious as to whether f2.8-f4 is where this lens should operate?

This is a brand new lens, so what is a simple test to see that the lens itself is ok?

cheers
Martin
