i was debating myself to pick a FF canon or a MFDB, anyway, i saw a refurbished 1ds mark II and i couldnt resist, so after i get the camera i pickup a 50mm just to try my camera was right.
First i noticed, and i used markII few time before, was my 50mm 1,4 distort every straight line that you put in front, i mean it gets a distortion like a if it was a wideangle no that big but something about 35mm lens . Second the resolution it´s good but not how i remembered, i still have some raws i shot a year ago with a standard zoom and a markII in a past job, these are quite similar if not better.
Today i went to buy a standard zoom lens, just for fun, my intention is buy a L lenses set in a future. I picked up a 28-135 is, it matches the resolution of my 50mm if not better, Is system works perfectly, and i dont get nasty distortion on 50mm position.
So my questions are, has nobody noticed some distortions with his 50mm?? is 50mm 1,4 generally not that good?? i did some homemade tests with both lenses and all f settings, and my 50mm doesnt get any better. What bothers me more is its barrel distortion, any thoughts???
