Lens reviews (Pure & RAW)

The performance of lenses if you save a file in the camera as a RAW file, and open it without any (in-camera) lens corrections. No sharpening has been applied, which gives you approximately the intrinsic quality of the combination of lens and test camera.
There is also a table based on WYSIWYG jpg results. which includes the effect of lens corrections (chromatic aberration, distortion, vignetting) and in-camera sharpening.

In the table below, final scores are listed for zoom lenses. The test results for individual focal lengths (zoom lenses and fixed focal length) are shown in another table with results for individual focal lengths.

There are scores for sharpness (Res), chromatic aberration (CA), vignetting (Vign) and distortion (Dist). The higher the score, the better the performance. The highest score is a 9.9. Note: lens scores are determined by the test camera (megapixels, sensor size, conversion to jpg).
