    So I finally got around to testing this lens today. Straight .jpg's.
    Barrel distortion is horrendous.
    You should be able to click through to see full size files.

    This first one wide open. The others between f8 and f16.

    Overall result: Pretty disappointing. I won't be using it again, the Zonlai is far superior.

    The Kaxinda 50mm f2.4 is another matter, it's good but too long for most of my work.

    Whooooa. I don't think I've ever seen a lens that long bend that much. Yikes.

    Bending will be the new bokeh. Everyone will be "bending" and the lens will rise in price and become a cult classic.

    They'll reissue it in 40 years.
