f/2.0 BATTLE! Canon 35mm FD 2.0 | Sigma 35mm 1.4 | zeiss 55mm 1.8 | fuji 35mm 1.4

I wanted to compare sharpness at f/2.0.

I got some surprising results. (btw I had default lightroom sharpening for these photos)

Reference Image 55mm 1.8 @ 5.6 on sony a7:

First: Sigma 35mm 1.4 @ 2.0 on nikon d600 (quite razor sharp. Center sharpness already out resolves the sensor)

Now Zeiss 55mm 1.8 @ 2.0 (Great sharpness. Not quite the level of the sigma as some of the dust detail is faded away)

Canon 35mm f/2.0 FD ssc concave thorium (f16 version). WOW! What is going on here? A 1973 old lens is getting crazy sharp output wide open. Talk about awesome micro contrast too!

Bonus photo 35mm 1.4 on x-e2 @ 2.0. Lets see how this one compares. Hmm not so hot.
