Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar Aperture Series: Painted Rock (Multi-Shot High-Res Mode, Focus Shift)
This series looks at the sharpness of the Zeiss Otus 100mm f/1.4 APO-Sonnar at medium distance in 187 megapixel Multi-Shot High-Res mode, evaluating focus shift in the process. It shows how a focus shift can work out to advantage in the right circumstances by good luck. But it can go the other way too—a loss of sharpness by displacing the zone of sharpness out of its ideal position.
Here, I got lucky, and what had been puzzling me suddenly became clear. This single evaluation is is worth the entire subscription price of diglloyd Zeiss DLSR Lenses by itself, at least if you want top results from the Otus 100/1.4 regardless of which camera is used—I figure if it puzzled me, it’s not going to be obvious to most. It makes no sense to buy a $4990 lens and then get less than it can deliver.
Images at up to the full capture resolution of 187 megapixels, so that the full imaging performance can be scrutinized at a ridiculously demanding resolution. Plus crops.
