Old vs New Shootout
Aug 24, 2012

Attempted another comparo today in the backyard. Decided to try out some older vs new lenses at various apertures. Unfortunately my upload limit is almost reached so I only uploaded one at almost wide open, and an f8.

I compared these lenses, and am no way trying to be scientific or decisive. I also don't really know what I am doing but, I tried. Just trying to contribute to the forum and show some various lenses in action all on a 5N body.

Files were shot in Raw/JPEG and uploaded here with a limit on file size of 4000k. Since the originals are around 16 megs each you can imagine that obviously some detail has been lost. Lightroom 4.1 with the DPreview uploader was used, and thus that is what did the raw-> jpeg conversions.

All pictures were shot on a tripod. I used manual focusing and tried to focus with generally as much of the frame in focus using peaking as possible. ISO was set at 100, mode used was Aperture priority. Shutter speeds changed accordingly. No lenses had any filters on them and I used my hand/body to shield the sun.
