Nice test... One thing though.. would have been better to set WB for each lens rather than using the same value for all lenses.. ie.. shoot grey card with each lens to set wb by.

I considered this, but in the end I wanted to try and show the different 'color casts' that each lens gives to the image. For example, the Helios 85mm 1.5 exhibits a strong yellowing of the image,

How do you know all other lenses aren't exhibiting a blue cast (but you used one of those to set WB by ? :--)

and at wide apertures the nokton 25 0.95 shows a green cast. Granted my test setup probably wasn't the best to demonstrate these color shifts... anyway, thanks for the suggestion.
