| p.5 #2 · Anyone Compared the Zeiss 35/f2 to Sigma 35/f1.4? |
Zhangyue, Yes, I'd like to see a:b tests under controlled circumstances, but absent that, what I noticed seems to be rather consistent under many circumstances for each lens, not just Wiseguy's, or the Sigma photos on this thread.
As for the two photos, I can see that the second one looks a bit processed (more than the first, though I'm guessing in reality she has a near flawless complexion in any case), and maybe I'd have done less, but that's not what I'm focussing on. It's more about the tonal gradations mirroring what the eye experiences. When I look at people or wherever, I don't see highlights burned out, and it's not so much that the highlights are clipped per se, but that they push very high giving a very harsh appearance, probably lacking a bit of color as well (but we need a controlled experiment to know). I just mention the observation because it seems so pervasive in the shots up so far on the web. I imagine that under ideal circumstances, the sigma harshness could be controlled, but is there a difference under less controlled circumstances? I'd like to know.
