Sunstars: Nikon 14-30 & Nikon 24-120 compared to Voigtlander


Test 2: Nikon 24-120mm F4 @99mm vs. Voigtlander 110mm F2.5

Main conclusions from this test:
Nikon 24-120: at 99mm (I tried to match the focal length of the Voigtlander but was somewhat off), bright points of light take on a hazy appearance until F11. Pointed rays emerge at F16, but they appear somewhat faint in this test example
Voigtlander 110: like the Voigtlander 21, the sunstars are already visible and well defined at F5.6. They grow in size with every stop, and at F16 they're at their largest.

The situation here is somewhat similar to the 14-30 compared to the 21, except the 110 holds its defined sunstars all the way throughout the aperture range from F5.6 upwards. In my opinion, the Voigtlander 110 does better sunstars than the Nikon 24-120 at every equivalent aperture.
