Due to significant risk of buying used and even brand new photographic equipment the ‘Stig’ Test can confirm if the glass elements of the lens are correctly aligned. In other words has the lens been banged or dropped. 

See our blog post – Why You Should Get Your Photographic Equipment Tested – The Stig Test


Once the Astigmatism test has been run we will supply a full test report for the lens. This report can give irrefutable evidence of the quality of the lens element alignment. If the the test results show the elements are significantly out of alignment then the lens can be returned to the retailer if within your 14 days cool off period.
