On that note, I was wondering how modern lenses like Canon's 35mm f1.4 L or the newer 35mm f2 IS stack up to R lenses in terms of sharpness, contrast and bokeh. Ignoring build quality, AF and IS, the price range is similar, but I would expect the newer lenses to be sharper. Anyone have any experience with these and a Leica 35 cron or lux?
I have not use any canon L glass other than 24-105, so can;t compare that. But I have used nikon 851.4G and a bunch of Zeiss 35/50/85 f1.4, and 35/50f2. Compare parallel to what I have, I would say 35lux is very sharp lens at a level that is no longer a concern for me. sharper than Zeiss 35f1.4 at center, but both just perfect fine for me. Most time, is not the lens performance a limit factor, but can you nail the focus perfectly. For most photo with 35lux, absolutely sharpness is not required. That also apply to 35cron. I feel for leica 35mm, they are 'people' lens, which can do landscape but I doubt they will be better than Canikon or sigma.
80/1.4 worth 2.5 kilopresidents for a s**tographer like me?
or 90/2 ASPH for 3.1 kilopresidents for that matter....
You are too humble, the level of skill in your photography is very high. I guess this is a question ask about 80lux and 90ASPH(English is not my first language) First I think 80lux can be have less than $1800 if you are patient. and 90ASPH R I seldom see less than $3500.
Depend on your priority and usage. For me, it is easy, as I don't have $3500 and I don't need sharp f2 lens as much as beautiful f1.4 lens
