The center of the G45 is very comparable to the FE 55. I haven't looked at the borders or corners yet. I was mainly testing at infinity and mainly looking at aharpness. What I did find was that when manual focusing the FE55 for longer distance subjects, it is very hard to get optimal resolution whereas it was quite easy with the G45. The contrast from the G45 made it much easier to nail the manual focus. The FE 55 seems to meters much more warmly on the A7R, and maybe that was throwing off my ability to manual focus....Show more →
Great, thanks! I'm definitely sold on the FE 55, but very curious how the g45 compares to it in the mid-zones and corners, especially at wider apertures. Regarding the FE 35, I did some comparisons with my 35 Lux FLE. In short, the FE 35 is better at 2.8 and 3.5 in the edges and corners, but then the Lux tightens up rapidly and surpasses it in sharpness and contrast from ~f/4 on. Under landscape conditions (infinity and f/5.6-f/8), the Lux is noticeably better. However, for the price, I still think the FE 35 is a great lens!
