Hi,

This is usually a job for a skilled technician. There are two aspects to test a lens, physical issues and optical issues.Simple tests however can be carried out photographing test charts.

There are often use three pieces of equipment for optical testing of cine lenses.

MTF tester
Here is an example of an MTF tester used for testing PL mount lenses.
