Lens Circle Data

With full frame and large format sensors becoming more and more common, it has become important to see what lenses will cover a sensor without vignetting. Lens circle data allows you to view an approximation of lens coverage and vignetting for certain lenses on different camera settings. This information is slowly being collected lens by lens. This is the list of lens sets that currently have full or partial collections of lens circle data included in the app.
