This comparison was done together with our friend and
contributor Jack Flesher (he also owned the Canon Mk. II and the Canon
135 f/2.0 lens).
We photographed 3 scenes (only 2 are presented here) with 3 high end
digital SLRs using the same lens: Canon 135 f/2.0 (known as one of
the sharpest lenses for 35mm). The cameras were:
- Canon 1D Mk. II (Jack)
- Canon 1Ds (Uwe)
- Kodak SLR/c (Kodak loaner)
The 1Ds and SLR/c were used from the same tripod position (although
the SLR has a different position of the tripod mount). The Canon 1D
Mk. II has a multiplier of 1.3 and was shot from further away (this
was not precise by any means). We show here photos that were all shot
at ISO 160 (the base ISO of the SLR/c).
All images were sharpened with Simple sharpening at the same level
although they may need to be sharpened differently to show softness
or not. All crops are at 100% magnification.
We hope you appreciate our unique service to offer all raw files for
full raw files here).
