Re: 16/2.8 and 16/1.4 - Comparison image pair - Sharpness

Erik,

I noticed the ⅓ stop difference in shutter speed in the EXIF for the f/1.4, too. I think it’s possible that’s the cause of the darker shadow areas for the f/2.8 lens, and the remarks on contrast differences. Then again, there may be a difference of (at least near) that size in the actual versus nominal apertures of the two lenses.

Rod, thanks for the comparison. If I didn’t already have the faster lens, I’d definitely consider the smaller, cheaper f/2.8 version.

All the best.
