There is so much more to any lens than its raw resolving power...

Also worth noting is that the 24mm f/1.8 out-resolves the Sigma 30mm f/2.8 in the SLR Lens Review (links posted above), so suggesting that the Sigma 30/2.8 out-resolves the Zeiss 24/1.8 is debatable.

Perhaps I should've stated that it depends on the sample variation. Interesting to see those two SLRLensReview links. I do know Zeiss lenses with those T* coatings do a lot to help with the mentioned micro-contrast.

Apologies for sounding like I said the Sigma was clearly the better lens. They are in two completely different classes to begin with.
