    Anyone know of a site with extensive MTF charts for current lenses.
    The Photodo site has some but of mainly older lenses, not new ones. I
    know Canon's site has them for their own lenses but I'd like to find
    MTF charts for other manufacturer's current crop of lenses.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Chasseurs d'Images magazine sell paper sets for entire lens lineups by


    http://www2.photim.com/Cmd/article.php?R=FT-01 (Canon)

    These are the same sheets that are published in the magazine from time
    to time. Included is general spec, commentary, resolution/contrast
    (cnter/edge), distortion, vignetting, color, true angle of view, light
    tranmission aperture error, tester comments, conclusion.

    The resolution chart isn't as good as the photodo chart (which I can't
    even get to appear anymore ... that site has gone downhill fast).

    The entire Canon test file is 13.50 Euros. Each test file is double
    sided stiff glossy paper. All in french, but numbers is numbers and
    with a name like Marc Potvin you probably speak french anyway. I have a
    few of these test sheets from the magazine and theye are very complete.
