Has any compared the Canon FDn 50mm f1.4 with the Zeiss Planar 50mm f1.7?

What are your opinions.



I took for you few shots with each lens.

Sony A7r with Zeiss Plannar 50/1.7 C/Y

Sony A7r with Canon FDn 50/1.4

Sorry for bad WB especially in Zeiss shots outdoor, but in this weather, those night shots are anyway meant to show bokeh and flaring instead of color and contrast.

ISO12333 chart is in high resolution and if you trust more numbers than eyes, you can use free MTF calculator to read MTF figures and compare them across.

If you prefer visual analyze like I do, right click on the image, choose "all sizes" and than "original". If it doesn't work, let me know.

I would pick Canon FDn 50/1.4 anytime, but this Zeiss is also very good.

Hope it helps.
