Vivitar 13mmF2.8 vs Bower 14mmF2.8

You have both the vivitar and bower wide angle lenses in stock, and based upon th eposted specifications the lenses are different, Bower 12 groups 14 elements, Vivitar 13 groups 16 elements,

we have seen some reviews of the Bower but nothing on the vivitar.

Is it possible to see one test shot, even if it is the inside of the store, with both lenses taken by the same camera from the same spot?

I would like to see any difference in field of view, and distortion between the two.

I am sorry, but this I cannot do. Firstly I am not located near our store and secondly when res'd down you would not see much to go by. I recently just got a new lens and 20mb scans ( the file size offered at the time of processing ) did not show me what a 100mb scan did.
