I was just going through my collection of clippings from Modern Photograph reviews, I just noticed that the OM 90mm Macro is actually listed as having low contrast until f/4. I know this particular comparison is as much about coatings and flare as anything else, but now I'm curious about how the OM 100mm would do. It's on my list of legacy lenses to try out one of these days...The Sony 90 macro is very resistant to veiling flare as shown in this image of a backlit tree:
ƒ/2.8 90.0 mm 1/60 200
Compare that to the same image taken with my adapted Olympus Zuiko OM 90mm f/2 macro, which gives up quite a bit of contrast in this lighting:
ƒ/2.8 90mm 1/100 200
Anyway, just a thought.
