contradictory findings
« on: December 31, 2013, 12:17:29 am »
This a comment for this page on the website
I find it interesting that, who share lens test data with DXOmark, conclude that the 58mm is sharper than the 50mm wide open!? See dpreview for their review posted today. They show sample images to back this up. This is a classic example of why testing a single sample of a lens with a test chart at a very short distance doesn't necessarily reflect the true performance of a lens in the field. Makes me skeptical about all of the DXOmark data as well as other website reviews for that matter. There are many lenses that have a fantastic reputation that havent tested well under DXOmark, such as the Zeiss 21mm f2.8

We discussed many times about 58mm lens results with our friend and colleagues from DPReview.
Their findings are very close to ours. And very complementary indeed. Test we did enables DPReview to go further in the analysis.
That’s why we appreciate to share our results with readers and other journalist.
It is always difficult to tell the whole story with only one point of view. That’s why our partnerships with DPReview or lesnumeriques in France is so interesting.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
