'But whenever pixels are moved around, sharpness suffers, there is no silver bullet.'

My thoughts exactly, and I point readers to this piece on 'contrived' and quite extravagant distortion, designed to be fixed in post (in-cam or RC), seemingly factored into lens design parameters:

http://www.photozone.de/olympus--four-thirds-lens-tests/529-oly_m918_456?start=1

Sony do something similar with the 16-50/2.8 zoom, I believe..for CA control as well. I am old school myself, I feel if you give the designers too many degrees of freedom they will eagerly grasp them.

You are shooting with a computer for a computer, and it may get worse than this over time.

Thanks Mark. New 14-24 ... and ... Zeiss 21 on the way tomorrow. Don't ask. At least I can do a comparison over the weekend. FYI: Amazon is running 24 months interest free on select lenses that are purchased directly from them. Free money is always nice.



Awaiting the report. I have owned the 21mm on canon and now own the 14-24mm on nikon. My d800 stresses out the 14-24mm corners but it is still very sharp.

Sorry guys... A couple of days after getting the 14-24 and Zeiss 21mm I had an offer to trade my D700 for a D3s. I couldn't pass it up. I'm awaiting delivery tomorrow then I should have some time to see how each lens performs.

MikeW, thanks for the heads up. Looks like i can't buy from thecamerastore online so I'll have to give them a call. I bought a lens on ebay but it turned out to be a total dud. If I can get thecamerastore to ship to the US this may prove very helpful.

Would love to see the correction applied in LR for the Zeiss!

Oh well, thecamerastore doesn't ship physical products outside of Canada per their website. It appears that I am still on the lookout for a 21/2.8 ZF.

That's easy. Just download the trial version of LR, grab a picture made with the 21/2.8 from internet and there you are.

It looks like popflash.com has a Distagon 21mm in stock for Nikon if anyone is interested. I picked up one off Ebay last night from them. Does anyone know where I can find a 82mm filter ring adapter for Cokin Z? Anybody want to sell me one? :-)

I just saw B&H has Zf.2 21 in stock in case people are having hard time finding the lens.
