This is a continuation of the test that started here. In this post, I’ll compare the following lenses:
- Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 Otus.
- Leica 90mm f/2 Apo Summicron-M ASPH.
- AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 G.
- Tamron SP AF Di 90mm f/2.8 Macro.
The center 1:2 crops:
The Summicron and the Otus are close, with the Otus the winner. The Tamron and Nikkor are about the same, and well back.
Again, it’s the Otus and the Summicron at the top and neck-and-neck. If I had to break the tie, I’d give it to the Leica. At the back of the pack, the Nikkor barely edges out the Tamron.
