| p.1 #17 · Zeiss 100 MP ZE (vs. 1.2/85 vs. 3.4/35-70) |
Well, I disagree up to a point, wickerprints. When trying to understand the rendering style of a lens, it is very useful to have a known reference point. It does not mean that the lenses have to be directly comparable, IMHO.
But then to take photos of brick walls to understand how a lens renders?
It's one test I think which is good for at least seeing the extent of vignetting and seeing the Zeiss is a MP, and should have excellent flat field reproduction, the brick wall test isn't a bad idea at least for this lens. The 85 and zoom, probably have much more field curvature, so getting sharp corners at large apertures might be impossible from this test - the curvature means that just ahead of or behind the wall is where the corners/edges might be sharp.
Now that real world example shows how superbly sharp this lens is even wide open. There seems to be a number of people that are selling fast 85mm primes for the Zeiss 100 f/2 MP on the alt forum and prefer the Zeiss rendering.
