But I was interested to see just how it compared to what else I have in terms of out and out sharpness. So I compared it to my Nikon f/1.4G and Minolta f/1.7 lenses wide-open and at f/8. For the f/8 comparison I included the Sony 28-70mm zoom into the mix as well. All were shot on my Sony A7. As per usual these are shot and processed raw with identical settings. These are in fact the settings I use for my picture library uploads and is the camera preset I have in Photoshop ACR.
As you can see at widest apertures the 55mm is the sharpest but at f/8 the other lenses aren't that far behind. Showing that optimum apertures and tripod mounting are great levellers when it comes to lens performance. However as I mentioned at the top of the post, sharpness is just one of the virtues of the 55mm and it is definitely the best lens I've ever owned, beating my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 by performing marginally better.
