Three new Zeiss Distagon comparisons on D3x: 21/2.8, 28/2, 35/2 Distagons
- Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon and Nikon 14-24, Nikon 16-35;
- Zeiss 28mm f/2 Distagon and Nikon 16-35, Nikon 24-70, Nikon 28/2 AI
- Zeiss 35mm f/2 Distagon and Nikon 16-35, Nikon 24-70, Nikon 35/1.4 AI-S.
I also provide full-resolution JPEGS through f/8 for all lenses involved, as well as extensive large crops and accompanying analysis. See the reverse-chronological index.
I think it’s fair to say that Nikon does an excellent job with their zooms, but that I’ll be sticking with my Zeiss primes for most of my shooting.
