Easy Way to Test Lenses?
Hi. ANyone can suggest a method of testing lenses? I have two lenses of very similar qualities that I want to pit against one another. Other than shooting the same scene twice and comparing it at 100% on screen, are there any other ways to test? i've heard abt shooting rulers etc etc....but si there a good quick way to compare to see which lens is better? even if its shoot two same scenes, what types of scenes shoudl be shot?
Any advice is welcomed.

Think you can shoot at different focal lengths and aperature sizes to compare the distortions and sharpness of the lens.
