Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 and 25/2.8 vs Nikon 24/1.4G comparison

Just published in my Guide to Zeiss ZF / ZE Lenses is a three way comparison between the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 Distagon, Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 Distagon, and Nikon 24mm f/1.4G.

The comparison includes distortion, a vignetting series, and of course sharpness. As a critical comparison, I double-shot this comparison on two different days with multiple aperture series per lens each time, a hassle, but worthwhile given the high performance of the lenses. All three lenses are very high performers, and so such a comparison is much harder than when comparing dissimilar lenses.

Obviously, my comparison did not use autofocus (such comparisons never do as it cannot be trusted). See below for more on AF with the 24/1.4G.

While I won’t be publishing this particular comparison in DAP, there will definitely be additional material on the Nikon 24/1.4G in my review of the Nikon 24mm f/1.4G.
