Without expensive equipment it is very difficult to tell how good your specific sample is (I had this problem when I bought my 70-300L). The one method I could imagine and tired is compare the new lens to an older one that you know is a good copy and sharp (in my case the 100L). Then match this difference to the expected difference from the iso crops of http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx ... and if you are not satisfied try afma or replace the new lens.

Unfortunately no specs here, except that it will have 6fps, and a newly designed sensor with very good low ISO performance. No hints about the name, but it will not have the “D” in the name. It's said to be something “very new” and specifically aimed at studio photography. Prototypes already undergoing tests."
