    Shame about the Cooke's. They should have sent their lenses themselves, the test was that good.
    That would have been cool. I was dying to put the 5/i's up against these lenses. We had them, but they got rented out last minute.

    From the lp/mm numbers, it looks like the MkII set had a bad sample @ 25mm?

    Could be the same for the K35 35mm. Always the risk one runs with that old glass.

    Thank you all for your tremendous effort in making this great test. It really is very interesting, and great for people that don't have easy access to all kinds glass.

    I think what may ring more true is that these lenses were working lenses and in various stages of service. Also, they are a few years older than I am. If something's out of whack in the lens it could potentially produce an error. It also could potentially be a bad copy. Too many variables. That's the risk you run though.


    Really awesome fun side note. Literally the moment I was backing up the data from these tests the hard drive they exist on died. It got two .tif files before it barfed! Gotta go see of the magic hard drive fairies can bring back my test images. *tears*

    If the optics of that 25mm in the Mark II set are any similar to the 25mm Zeiss Contax still lens, I wouldn't be surprised. It was the single weak one of the wides.
