Here’s an interesting test from Camtec with some of their popular modern and vintage spherical lenses. The tests were shot with an ARRI Alexa XT Plus in ProRes 4444 Log-C. Framegrabs were exported from FCP 7 as high-rez .PNG files. Note this is a test mostly of flare, contrast and hightlights—not a test of skin tones or how portraits are handled. The comments come from Kavon Elhami. Tests by Tim Jensen. Your mileage may vary, and that’s why there are so many different flavors of ice cream—and lenses.
