Mine has turned out to be a bad copy and I've asked to be re-imbursed as I'm worried that I might get another bad copy if it's from the same batch. I shot at f8 and 5.6 on infinity and tried manual as well but all were soft across the whole frame. Perhaps I expect too much but at the price for a manual focus, I expect better and the text on the 100% crop to be sharper than that. Raw to jpg with no added processing

Just a thought, but did you set the focal length manually so ibis knows what focal length its dealing with.

I liked its size, but found that it wasn't as sharp as my Samyang/Rokinon fish eye and I just couldn't justify the cost of the Laowa in that case. Nonetheless, had fun taking it out for sunrise today before returning it tomorrow.
