Pentax - providing lenses for testing
Lens Reviews - Pentax
Hallo unknown stranger!

As you may have noticed you can find numerous Lens Tests here in OpticalLimits. These lenses were usually not supplied by manufacturers but by readers like you from all over Europe! So far more than 200 lenses were loaned and counting! Therefore the tested lenses are neither hand-picked nor financed otherwise.

If you're living in AUSTRALIA or NEW ZEALAND and would like to help building up the Lens Test Report archive you may consider to loan one or more of your lenses for testing purposes. Naturally we would pay for all your shipping expenses.
You would also be eligible for a small rental fee depending on the value of the target lens(es).

The standard procedure would be as follows:

  1. contact us to schedule a date and to clarify any questions you might have.
  2. send the INSURED package via airmail (preferrably standard postal service).
  3. once I've received the package I will test the lens(es) during the following ~3-4 days before ...
  4. ... returning the package to you again

The following lenses would have a top priority (please don't offer other lenses at this stage):

  • NO REQUEST at the moment (I just moved to Sydney and am waiting for my test equipment to arrive)

We're well aware that some would like to see reviews of legacy lenses but due to time constraints this is not possible at this stage.

So if you're owning one or more of these lenses, live in the EU and would like to support the idea just drop me a line to my email address below.

best regards
