In Part 2 of the Sharpness Shootout, we’ll see how the two lenses perform at a range of focal lengths with a range of different F-numbers. The goal here is to determine at which focal length and F-number combinations perform best. Remember, right-click and ‘Open Image in New Window’ to see better quality. And download the original files to really see the actual size quality.
The following images were captured on a rock solid custom carbon tripod with a shutter release.
Before we get started, you may want to view the re-sized and optimized images below larger, naturally.
First, right-click (or control-click) on an image and click ‘Open Image in New Window‘.
Or go pro and download all the hi-res files for 100% actual-size viewing on your computer. A Retina display is of course ideal for seeing the actual quality.
There’s no adjustment of anything. The images you see here could have been sharpened or adjusted, but they were not. The originals are uploaded for you to do whatever you wish with, so have fun!
Everything below is RAW image output – no adjustments.
