sonya7ii50mmtest by Don, on Flickr Time for a completely unscientific lens test. I thought the results were interesting but will probably not surprise anyone here. You might need to download the image to make the full detail available; I've made the image public on flickr. My new-to-me a7ii / 55/1.8 FE combo arrived earlier this week, and my Metabones Nikon > FE adapter arrived today. So what better way to kick things off than a test of the 55 Zeiss vs. my 50/1.8G Nikkor. Mind you, the Zeiss retails for about 4x what the Nikkor does, street price around $200 for the Nikkor and $800 for the Zeiss. Both images were shot at 1/60 and wide open at f/1.8. The Zeiss shot on the left is a little cooler rendition, the Nikkor a little warmer. I can't see any barrel distortion with the Zeiss while the Nikkor shows a little. But the big difference is in the detail. Enlarging the image on my 27" monitor, I can see much better detail in the Zeiss, particularly in the plastic rod and cord; these get a little fuzzy on the Nikkor. It's not a bad showing for the Nikkor, but the clear winner is the Zeiss. Already I'm enamored of this little lens. Wondering how the rest of my Nikon glass stacks up at this point.
