Yesterday, we looked at the performance of the following lenses:
- Nikon 60mm f/2.8 AF Micro-Nikkor
- Nikon 58mm f/1.4 AFS-Nikkor G
- Coastal Optical 60mm f/4 UV-Vis-IR Apo Macro
- Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG Art (Copy 1)
- Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG Art (Copy 2)
- Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus
when aimed at a distant landscape at f/4, the widest aperture shared by all. Today we’ll take a look at f/5.6.
The center, at 3x:
It’s surprising to me how little difference there is except for color.
At the upper right:
The Micro-Nikkor, which wasn’t cutting it at f/4, is looking credible. The 58 f/1.4 Nikkor, not so much. Then comes the Coastal Optical, struggling a bit, and the two Sigmas and the Otus are tied for first, in my book, anyway.
