Tired of waiting for someone else to do this properly so here are my latest tests done today. After spending almost 3 hours aligning and playing I did finally manage to get some pretty good edge sharpness. Still a teeny bit soft on the far right edges but usable until Redrock releases a new achromat for EX cameras's (He,he..). My Focus is about 32 & Zoom is 90. Vignetting if I Zoom out any wider than that with my 24mm.

Please feel free to comment or question.

Next tests I am going to do will be with the older cinescreen 1 as I still think it gives a more film like image, has less CA, less vignetting and no portholing problems when stopping down the lens. The old cinescreen is half a stop down on light but should be fine with the EX camera and new MicroXe.

Cheers.

Yes you probably are because you have the M2 encore + microX encore. I shot these test with only the MicroX encore upgrade. My M2 encore upgrade is now shipping so will do another test with the whole new system when it arrives. It would be great if you could post some Focus chart shots from your setup.
