  1. I have been taking pool test shots to understand the performance of the Nauticam WACP-C. I figure these tests might be useful to others. The test images are available at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wc8u0jvg0ns2o8k/AABy8geIDmsE4XBXV0ac9ODKa?dl=0 Test setup: objects in the pool are aligned horizontally in the same vertical plane; ambient light; WACP-C images are with a Canon R5, EF 28-70mm f3.5-4.5 ii, images taken at 28mm; other images are with a Canon 7Dii Tokina 10-17mm in a 100mm dome, images taken at 13mm (which I think has about the same field of view as the 28mm on the WACP-C); files are not cropped (i.e., original out of the camera); all focused on the center object; all taken from approximately the same distance and angle of view (to the best of my ability); all were taken RAW, uploaded to Lightroom classic, downloaded as jpg; the only post processing was a slight adjustment to exposure so that the images have about the same histogram. (I varied the shutter speed and aperture accordingly while taking the shots, but the ambient light changed, which is why some exposure adjustment was needed). My conclusions from the test regarding the WACP-C with the EF 28-70mm are: Center sharpness is so-so at f5.6, ok at f8, and good at f11 or f14. Corner sharpness is terrible at f5.6, not good at f8, tolerable at f11 and f14. The Tokina 10-17 does better in the corners, even at F9. WACP-C sharpness in the center is better than the Tokina, but of course, the R5 is used with the WACP-C (45MP) and the Tokina with the 7Dii (20MP). I was under the impression that the WACP-C produced "near rectilinear" view. To me, this isn't rectilinear at all. The distortion is similar to the Tokina. If I were only shooting wide (100+ degree field of view), then I would say the 7Dii with the Tokina 10-17 has some significant advantages over the WACP-C, such as better corner sharpness, lighter and much more compact. The center sharpness with the R5 is better, but it is possible that the Tokina 10-17 with the new R7 could do nearly as well there too. What the WACP-C can do that the Tokina cannot, is give a narrower field of view (the 70mm end of the EF28-70). This is very helpful when you just can't get so close to the subject. I managed to upload one image to the post (The WACP-C 28mm f11). If you have an interest in the others, then hopefully you can access them through the dropbox link above.
