I am soon going to purchase a Canon EOS 5D and want to be sure to buy the best optics in terms of sharpness, contrast, color, distorsion, etc.
I have for years been using Leica M and the lenses which are known for their very high quality.
First, I would like to know if I should expect all Canon lenses to behave similarly on the 5D compared to the 1Ds Mark II (given that both are full frame while however not having exactly the same sensor).
Second, will I obtain superior results with the following lenses compared particularly to the 24-70 f/2.8L lens (and if so, with which lenses and for which criteria):
- 24mm f/1.4L
- 28 f/1.8 or 28mm f/2.8 (Aside from lens speed, which lens is superior in terms of sharpness, contrast, color, distorsion, etc.?)
- 35 f/1.4L
- 50 f/1.4
- 85 f/1.8 or 100 f/2.0 (Which lens is superior in terms of sharpness, contrast, color, distorsion, etc.?)
In essence I am seeking the ultimate quality for my landscape and portrait use and want to have the most objective opinion possible.
Many thanks for your feedback as I want to invest wisely in my new system without regret.
