Canon 35L data
« on: November 03, 2012, 06:01:38 pm »
This a comment for <a href="http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en">this page on the website.

Your measurements are pure nonsense. They show the 35L wide open way softer than the Canon standard for softness: the 50/1.4. Take a look here, or at photozone, etc.:


You also claim that the 35L is softer that the 50L at f/1.2 even if you stop down the 35L a bit. Nonsense again:


BTW, I have first hand experience with all those lenses and own some of them.

I agree. 35L is sharper than Nikon, Sony and Zeiss equivalents.

As I own both 35L and 50L, I can say 50L is very sharp as well.
At f/1.4 both are almost equally sharp with 35L leading.
At f/4 roughly the same.

But they are different focal lengths and 50L is the sharpest DSLR 50mm lens. Only Leica 50mm f/1.4 Summilux ASPH is slightly sharper at f/1.4 for 3 times of the price.
