Lens Color Rendition
8 months ago

I'm asking about this because I haven't been able to find an adequate answer else where. What components or dynamics of a lens construction accounts for color rendition? I used a friends old school  35-70/2.8 lens for a shoot of my school's basketball game and it produced colors not seen with the 18-55 kit lens.

35-70/2.8

The 35/1.8 also offers a nice rendition of colors

35/1.8

However, the kit lens is no slouch either

18-55

Now, if I'm not mistaken photographs #1 and #3 both have an EV of ~7. Photograph #2 has an EV of ~8. (Note, that photograph #1 and #3 were shot in the same gymnasium on the same night using different lenses.)

How do we account for the different looks or colors of each lens? Can anyone discern a difference? Am I crazy?

Just trying to do my best
