    What does everyone do for a quick decentering test for E-mount lenses (or any lens for that matter). I buy most my lenses used and in most cases face to face. How would you do a quick decentering tests (less then 5 min) that you can check on the camera LCD. Many have complained about E-mount lens decentering and I'm hoping to pick up a 35mm 1.8 in the near future.

    I photograph my book case, focus on the center and then I want to see equal unsharpness going to all corners. Takes just a little bit more than 5 minutes for setting up a tripod and evaluating the shot(s) in Lightroom on my PC which is way better for viewing than the camera's LCD. That said, I've evaluated lenses before buying them on a fair just by looking at the enlarged playback view in-camera.
