Wide angle lens reviews (WYSIWYG)

The performance of Low light lenses in the table below are based on "What you see is what you get ( WYSIWYG )", as you save images in the camera as a standard sharpened jpg file, with all the in- camera lens corrections applied (vignetting, distortion, chromatic aberration).

There is another, "Pure and RAW" table with test results based on unsharpened raw files, where no corrections for chromatic aberration, distortion or vignettinge have been applied. These scores approach the intrinsic quality of the combination of lens and test camera.

If a lens is tested on a camera with an APS-C or micro-43 sensor, then the focal lengths have been converted to the equivalent field of view for a camera with a full frame sensor ( mm @ ff ). Because of this conversion, you can compare lenses on cameras with different sensor types. Note thet lens scores are determined by the test camera being used (megapixels , sensor size, jpg conversion).

With Camera Review Stuff I hope to make a modest contribution to the pleasure that you get from photography. By testing cameras and lenses in the same way, evluating the results and weighing up the pros and cons, I hope to help you find the right camera or lens.
