135mm sharpness and IQ comparison sought.
May 30, 2010

Hi. There have been threads recently asking about the Sony Zeiss 135mm f1.8 telephoto lens (SAL-135F18Z). By all accounts this is a superb lens, and by some, one of the best of all time.

My question is, how does it compare in IQ (obviously, it's much faster) to the high-quality Sony G-class zooms?
.the 70-200mm f2.8 G
.the 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 G
.the 70-400mm f4.0-5.6 G

Of the above, the 70-400mm is said to be the sharpest. Subjectively and objectively, what will be the difference between a shot in adequate light at 135mm between that lens and the 135mm Zeiss prime?
