…depends which stars are important - money stars Vs performance stars

"Performance" got full five stars - I could live with that  Wink

 

And the 3 ½ stars "value for money" - come on, guys, just do it cheaper! to me it looks like the best FF super wide angle out there. In comparison they rate the Otus 85/1.4 with 3 ½ stars overall, just to put things into proportion… And the prime lens gets 4 ½ stars for performance and 4 for value. While the Canon harvest all available stars, is a "cheaper" lens, with AF, without focus problems like the Zeiss causes to CaNikon cameras (alone that bit makes me rolling eyes - what are they testing?) Anybody could help me with a perspective to look at their logic?

 

Funny people those test folks  :lol:

Funniest thing: "features: 4 stars". Features? Lets see. Weather sealing? Yes. Lens hood? Yes. Image stabilisation? Yes. Silent, fast auto focus? Yes. Widest available FOV for a corrected lens? Yes.

I wonder which feature is missing.

no front filter thread, no IS, too big/heavy, not f/2.8 at this size/weight, no DOF-marks, no aperture ring on lens, not available in FD-mount

 

:-p

I think this lens is irrelevant for all but the top, razor-thin stratum of shooters. Price-wise it approaches the big white territory.  :wacko:

No Disco, no bar, and it doesn't come in six-packs. ........ what is this here?
