My Reference Lenses For Testing Sharpness

To cross test for maximum camera/sensor potential, the lens must be the very best.

For a fair cross-comparison test, I need lenses that I can shoot on both Canon and Nikon (so they must have an aperture ring, or I must have both Canon and Nikon versions, e.g. Zeiss ZF.2 and Zeiss ZE; this rules out fine lenses like Nikon’s 60mm f/2.8G, as well as all Canon EF lenses).

I expect to use the following lenses to compare the Nikon D800/D800E, Nikon D4, Canon 1D X, because these lenses have proven themselves as the best of the best in their ranges.

Certainly there is ample room for many other kinds of testing, the above list is really for use in testing peak resolving power against a 36-megapixel sensor.

Given the new benchmark of 36 megapixels with the Nikon D800E, I will of course be reevaluating the entire Zeiss ZF.2 line on the Nikon D800E in my Guide to Zeiss ZF/ZE Lenses. Which of course cannot happen overnight, but will accrue over several months, and the D800E is not even due until mid April.
