    digital lens... focal lenght...

    Hi,

    i know that wider is the focal lenght, more important is the difference between digital lens and regular LF one's.
    So, here is my question : anybody test side by side something like an apo sironar s 150 vs an apo sironar digital 150 ?

    for infos : i've tried myself a regular 120 macro rodenstock against my 90 apo sironar digital and wasn't impressed by the 120 (for macro work ! ).

    Sorry, have not tested the lenses you ask about. I can tell you from my experience that generally speaking, lenses designed for MF digital capture are going to be sharper than those designed for LF film.

    I have not tried those either, but I can tell you that a 35mm apo-sironar is only about half as sharp as a 35mm Digitar-XL on a P45+ by my eye.

    Look on luminous landscape. I'm not sure who tested but the color was much better.
