is the 3rd one(far right). I prefer the sharpness and less noise. I almost would take the color from the middle shot, however.
Left. The distance to the background is wrong for the other 2 lenses.
Hi,Thanks for comment. Don't really understand your statement on distance to the background. Nothing moved except that tripod mount was used on two of the lenses. Distance to subject was 3.8 m from camera, so I think difference matters little.It's interesting to see that almost all posters prefer the left image.Best regardsErik
yeah, my mistake. I am thinking of the registration distance on the back being longer so narrower angle of light to the sensor. Making the shot look the same would require a movement of the tripod. That is wrong.So you are using 150mm fl approx for all shots. So the bokeh difference on the lettering is a parameter of the lens design not the distance. Its surprising to me as sony lenses are usually pretty good on that. Still, the hassy lens looks quite a bit better.
I am much surprised that the image on the right, Sony 70-400/4-5.6 has seemingly wider DoF than the others. It's much more visible in the "bookeh crops", here: http://echophoto.dnsalias.net/ekr/Images/Zeissness_3/F8/bokeh.htmlExposure was essentially the same on all.Best regardsErik
Clearly a Leica lens would be best - you'd be able to taste the orange
Gee, I am just hanging around with nothing interesting or useful to do, so I'll surely take your quiz. NOT. Please, give us a break.
