500/4 compared

This a comment for this page on the website
Using the data here at DxO mark, I compared the three 500mm lenses from Nikon, Sony and Canon using similar cameras, say D3x, A850 and 1DsIII. The results may surprise everyone including testers here: all three lenses are almost equally sharp. The transmission of Canon and Nikon is only 4.5T as compared that that of Sony 4.3T. I wonder how these critics drawn against Sony coming from a very scientific lab testers.

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

We reviewed the 500mm from Sony before having measured its direct competitor, so the only comparison available was maybe unfair for this very good lens  :)
We will add another comparison with the 500mm competitors.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
