Thanks for these comparisons, Boris and Wayne! The MP 50 is on my list for combined landscape and semi-macro (nature) use. I am satisifed with the corner sharpness shown here, when stopped down to f/8.
I was also surprised by the performance of your Contax N 50 1.4, Wayne. Even in the corner crops, at f/5.6, the MP is noticeably more contrasty once you are inside the absolute extreme corner. Could the difference in contrast be explained by new coatings on the MP?
I will post some comparison shots of actually landscape scene where the focus is not at infinity and you will see less contrast difference between the two, just slightly less sharpness and a difference in DOF and how quickly the DOF rolls off.The new 50MP ZE seems to be a little warmer than the older 50/1.4's.
Hopefully my above comparison shots demonstrate the 50MP performance and the extreme corner problem below f5.6 to which everyone can decide if they are ok with it or not. I also wanted to show the 50 MP performance relative the 35/2.
I will keep working on showing better the 50MP's better performance vs the 50/1.4, especially for landscape.
