I'm not able to redo the comparisons as I've since sold my Nikon DSLR (I'm planning to be Nikonless until they launch a mirrorless full-frame camera).

However I stumbled into the following guy's comparison of the Nocticron @f/1.2 versus Canon 85mm @ f/2.5. Here again the MFT shot seems to have more in focus. What is going on?

42.5mm MFT @ f/1.2:

85mm FF @ f/2.5:

One thing that's apparent is that framing is different. The Canon shot appears to have been taken closer to the target than the Panasonic shot.


I'm bored from all these "contributions"
