Worlds best standard prime lenses - head to head!

Featured Saturday, 01 March 2014 23:38

Some of the worlds most desirable standard prime lenses put head to head.

 The crew over at 3D Kraft have put together an AMAZING comparison of some astonishing lenses, all on the Sony A7:

- The Legendary Leica Summilux 50mm f/1.4 ASPH

- Zeiss FE Sonnar T* 55mm f/1.8

- SLR Magic HyperPrime CINE 50mm T0.95

- Leica Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 ASPH

- The new legend - Zeiss Otus Apo Distagon T* 55mm f/1.4

These are SERIOUS lenses - ranging from a couple of grand up to $12,000! That said - You will be astounded by the results! They test the fast lenses at 0.95, and also at 1.4 so there is a direct comparison - and they also test all lenses through to f8, middle, midframe, and in the corners.... the results are SO interesting.

I suggest as you scroll through the pages of images, DON'T read the captions first time around. See if you can guess which lens created each image. 

For example - check out these two shots, both 100% crops taken at f1.4

IMAGE TWO

 Can you tell which lens made which?

Check out the full 3 page testing at 3D Kraft - great work guys!

Nikon has been promoting the larger diameter and shorter flange distance of the Z mount, and how this will allow more lens designs, easier design, better optics, faster AF and edge to edge sharpness. But are they actually better?
