Mike,

I have been testing my lenses with the USAF 1951 Test charts for 50 years. You can download a high quality file for printing here.

There are other charts available for download but I find the USAF charts easier to interpret.

I purchased the charts I use from the now defunct Modern Photography.

The test setup for the different lenses and how to read the charts can also be found on line.
