25 lenses between 50 and 58mm tested for sharpness

made a sharpness comparison of 25 manual 'normal' lenses between 50 and 58mm + Pen-F 38, 40 and 60mm lenses, see the sets of photos here

camera used was Sony NEX5N, series of wide open, f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8 and f11. Taken in RAW, converted with LR 3.5 at default settings, that is no editing, NO contrast, sharpness asf. added.

distance to subject was abt. 1.25 m, tripod, self timer, live view for focusing used.

there are also sets of 100% crops, sets by f stop used, e.g. the wide open center crop set , also good to be viewed as slideshow please click on the 'show info' to see which lens was used.

a pic of the lenses used:

hope this will be of interest to some, cheers, kuuan
