As we get these bigger and bigger lenses to deal with higher expectations for resolution and abberation corrections, I'm surprised that doesn't provide more of an opportunity to reduce the "obliquing" (which you would do with a larger entrance pupil?) issues. I suppose the mount diameter is a limiting factor in how the optic has to be designed in this respect?

Very nice samples!


Five of those samples are mine. I had this lens for preview this summer.

Mike, care to comment on the relative performance of the Otus 28 and the Milvus 25? What I have in mind is swapping my 28 for a Milvus 25+35... But only if....

Well the 28 is heavier. The 25 felt great to hike with. I felt the bokeh was similar, as was the rendering. both were sharp corner to corner. I took the 25 to Iceland, Banff, the Washington Coast and on that helicopter ride above Mount St Helens.

fwiw I posted many of my shots on flickr with the exif off halfway down page 5 to page 9.

Funny story about the helicopter. I'm up there at sunset and put the 25 on my a7r2 via metabones IV. The connection started to get glitchy and about the time I would have a nice composition lined up, it would lose connection. I babied it through that flight, rotating the lens a bit to get the connection back. I was pretty freaked about not getting the shots on this rare opportunity. It was totally a MB IV issue. That and Fred mentioned how happy he was with the Sigma MC -11 drove me to order one that night. Happiness ever since...

Sounds like a sales pitch for a D850 if I ever heard one
