Rokkor vs. FD - Sharpness vs. Contrast
7 months ago

I'm beginning to notice a pattern:  My Rokkor 50/1.4 is sharper than my FDn 50/1.4, but the Canon has better contrast.  I'm beginning to gravitate more toward the Rokkor because I find it easier to pump up the microcontrast in LR, but you can only do so much with sharpness.  I also notice that my Rokkor seems about a half-stop or so faster.  Both lenses are in excellent condition.

Anyone else have similar experiences.

What would you do?

Michael
