Hi ocean2059...you know, they are pretty close, in a sense. I think the 90 was sharper stopped down at mid distance, and they both have great pop, too. The 90 was(already sold)much smaller and lighter, too. It was a great lens, with lots of character, and really does stunning portraits with the Mandler glow.
BUT...there's a reason the R80 commands the respect that it does...it has a look that no other lens has that I've ever had. Granted, I probably have limited experience compared to lots of members here, but this lens just sings! The bokeh is gorgeous, the separation is incredible, and it too has that Mandler glow...
Others could most def give you the technical aspect of why. I haven't had the lens long enough yet, but already I'm in love. I love shooting WO most of the time, and this lens begs to be shot as such.
It just has the look...check out other users with it; zhangue, xenon99, Jako, to name a few...all way more experienced users than I am, and their images are what drove me to get one.

Hers are some images cross posted in Sony A7 (r) photo thread that I took last evening at the Trexler Nature Preserve in Schnecksville, PA. The first is taken with my tripod mounted Leica R 280mm f4 Apo Telyt lens and my A7r and all of the flower images were taken with my tripod mounted Leica R 100mm f2.8 Apo-Macro-Elmarit lens and my A7r. All images processed in LR5.5; some images relativily heavily processed from RAW.

Ahn, great dalhia shots. Are they recent? I did not think that they were in bloom for another few months. Where did you shoot them?

Nice shots, Greg! Is the second one wide open as well? I am learning to use my 80, and am finding it quite soft wide open, even when I manage to get it in focus, which isn't the easiest thing in the world for me (on A7R)

R80 lux is known to be soft wide open due to undercorrected SA which gives it the Mandler glow. That goes away supposedly by 2.8 where it becomes very sharp with nice bokeh.

Jack, has posted quite a few beautiful portraits wide open with the R80 lux on the A7r in the Walter Mandler thread he started. Although not super sharp wide open, the subject will be relatively sharp compared to blurred background and it has dreamy soft bokeh and beautiful unique rendering. It is a very nice portrait lens, Congrats, on your new to you copy! Hope to get one someday.

Hi Philber...before I got mine, I was concerned about WO sharpness, too. And then zhangue was saying how he wished his copy of the 80 had as much pop as my 90 Cron.
I shoot it WOost of the time, and granted, I've only had it for 3 weeks, but I find my copy is sharp WO. Not 100 planar sharp, but more than acceptable!! And for some reason, I feel the 80 has very good 3D rendering, too. It tends to be more subtle than say the planar, but IMO it's there just the same!!
But, the R80 has a unique look that in my limited experience,most lenses can't replicate! And now with the grip for the A7, it's much more comfortable to carry around!!

Haven't posted here in a while - tough when you only have one R lens . . .

Humped the 180/3.4 APO Telyt 4,000 feet up this morning for a few shots on the A7R. Excellent sharpness right down to the pixel level if you get it focused perfectly.

f/5.6 I believe . . .
