Re: Manual Focus Nikon Glass


I guess I will fail at my promise of no more test shots, well maybe at least Leighton will find this somewhat interesting.

I took two landscape pictures with the 55mm 1.2 SC on the D800 and I am about to prove to you that this lens is sharper at 1.2 than at 5.6 at this distance. It also has equal depth of field. No I do not indulge in single malt scotch. refer to the evidence.

First the full frame D800 at 1.2, contrast enhanced, no other changes from standard landscape pic control. No sharpening.

Please feel free to peruse full sized in flickr if you like to pass time.

The following claims are laid: the 1.2 photo may glow with aberrations and has less contrast but it is sharper than the 5.6 and has identical depth of field.

The proof for depth of field, go look at full size in Flickr.

The proof for sharpness/definition: look at the birds

There is more discernible detail in the 1.2 photo below that in the 5.6 one. This lens may peak at 2.8, will have to test that.
Now look at the 'yute'

Now just for kicks a lake pic at 5.6 note the people on it

It is a couple having their picture taken!

This particular sample curves the field in on the extreme right side, not the left, kind of interesting, but it does not ruin the photos. I am happy with it.

No more for now.
