Lens reviews (mm)

All lens reviews are, with: "What you see, is what you get" in mind, based on standard jpg files straight from the camera. Careful development of RAW files will yield higher image quality. In our camera reviews the image quality of jpg files and RAW files is compared for each camera. Scores are shown for sharpness / resolution (Res), chromatic aberration (CA), vignetting (Vign), and distortion (Dist).The tested focal length ("[email protected]") is expressed as the focal length equivalent for a lens on a camera with a full frame sensor. Doing this yields test results for lenses tested at different sensor sizes, which can be compared directly.
