No way you can correct distortion, vignetting and severe CA in PS or LR with no degradation of IQ.
And in a large print it will not look the same as a lens that is perfect from the start.


Do you state this based on your personal experience producing a lot of very large prints, or is this speculation?

I regularly make large prints myself on an in-house Epson 7900. My experience with producing such prints from photographs made with several full-frame and a few cropped-sensor cameras and wide range of lenses including the Canon 135mm f/2 L does not correspond to your claims at all.

Besides which, there is no "severe CA" from the 135mm f/2 lens and distortion and vignetting are extremely low with this lens.

This Zeiss clearly destroys Canon wide open.


"... clearly destroys..." - Nonsense and hyperbole. Enjoy! ;-)

Moving on...

On a separate issue that seemed to become a concern for some, I probably do something like 80%-90% of my work from the tripod and using MF in live view. I'm very critical about image quality and I don't tend to "spray and pray" - with some exceptions when shooting certain types of wildlife and some sports.
