Quick portrait battle of 2 vintage lenses no longer for sale. Only found on eBay, other classified websites, garage sales and pawn shops. Not scientific just for fun – yes with lots of PP you could get them more similar, but I don’t like spending too much time doing that. Both manual focus lenses adapted to Fujifilm XT10. Shot indoors ISO 1000, 1/180, with bounce flash Fujifilm EF-20 and processed in Iridient Developer – which one wins and why?
For me the Carl Zeiss wins this one because:
- The colours render better even with similar processing. The Canon renders a bit flatter.
- The Zeiss has more detail to me, even though they’re both great lenses for around AUD$100 each.
- Yes I’ll admit I probably cropped the Canon pics too much.
