| p.1 #1 · Nikon 14-24 suspect soft copy |
I picked up a 14-24 about a week ago. I've got 10 days for any exchanges so I thought I'd run a simple test comparing it with my 24-70 and 24/1.4. The result at 24mm has surprised me quite a bit and I'm wondering if I should exchange the 14-24.
I'd have expected it might perform a little weaker than the 24/1.4, but not the 24-70. In the following JPEGs, not only does it show the 14-24 doesn't quite reach 24mm, but it's also significantly softer to my eye. All shot at /4, but the story doesn't change at 5.6 +. I focused directly on the wall and had the camera on a tripod. These are 100% crops all processed the same in Lightroom 4.
What do you think?
