Re: Some older lenses are better, for sure

You do know that most film lenses don't work well on digital sensors, by the way? Film could handle light that strikes the capture medium at oblique angles; digital sensors have problems with that, requiring different lens designs and/or microprisms on the sensor. Does this not have any effect on how a lens renders?

I know there is that problem with rangefinder lenses which come close to the film plane but can you really say "most film lenses"? I thought slr and dslr lenses were similarly designed in that respect, at least both have to clear the mirror?
