Looks pretty good actually - contradicting some earlier posts (including mine).

Re: Olympus 8mm 1.8 Pro &n 7-14mm Pro

Olympus should have made sure Robin's images were the first to hit the net, rather than the lacklustre examples that resulted in the lukewarm reception.

The images look great but i have little UWA experience, should we be concerned about the stretched stars in the corners of Robin's images, is it a case of - the corner performance could be better?

Agreed, I too doubted the quality but these look pretty impressive in as far as we can see. It would be nice if he shared some full resolution shots to examine though.

What a fantastic location to test Photographic Equipment.

Robin always produces a good review, but this one I enjoyed more than most.

Robin was quite happy but the night sky shots are exhibiting a small amount of "star trails" so it is dificult to detemine the exact amount of stretch in the corners.
