Published MTF if they come from Zeiss or Leica are usually real. And from anyone else usually not. (Sigma is exception lately I think)

Difference is caused by calculated MTF (how good should perfect lens be in theory) and measured (how good are real lens in real life).


I mean the images seems sharper/better than their published 50lux V1 MTF, which is very similar to Zeiss Planar MTF, but real world image is vast different at 1.4.

zhangyue: interesting shot of Carrot Top alike.
Your images seem to have very minimal PP despite your comments/notes on custom lens profiles. Could you please elaborate more on this?
Thanks



Jako, indeed, my work flaw all happened in LR, thus PP should be qualified as minimal. For 80lux, I have found its rendering is very smooth and glow at WO to my taste, so I usually will not boost Clarity, Contrast, Saturation slider in LR. on the contrary I apply negative value in those slider most of time and just let lens doing its thing. 80lux almost like good food with its natural flavor with no need of any souse to harm its special taste to my like.

This is purely personal and highly depend on subject. So, I was trying to suggest people trying different way to treat this lens and see if they like it For me, this 80lux is the only lens I have no complain on anything, I love its character, and fully satisfied lens designer's choice balance optics and character instead of chase optics performance only. In no way it is not good at other thing but I can safely say It is a one of best tool for it's designed for: portrait.

Maybe Zeiss lied. Planar isnt exactly sharp at 1.4.. its "so-so". But I cant really know, cause S5 Pro is as far from sharp detail machine as possible.


JaKo that 8 shot stitch is unbelievable good..

@Eiffel: thanks for posting these! I like all of them, but particularly the second one. I'm currently considering purchasing this lens. Which version of the lens were these images made with?

TIA,

Ron

No surprise. 35lux at f2 and f2.8 bokeh is very smooth, even smoother than 35cron. I compared 35cron and 35lux at same aperture, and notice 35lux has more blur, smoother than 35cron at f2 and ff2.8.

35lux at WO, Bokeh can be busy occasionally, especially at edge.

That photo of the old dude is one of the most amazing that I have seen in this thread. And it was shot with the Elmarit 35mm? The snowy bus one is awesome too. I love the sharp and not too shallow DOF look. Absolutely love it.
