This page examines the color correction and sharpness of the XCD 30mm f/3.5 versus the 45mm f/3.5 utilizing a a subject at a distance of around 6 feet (~2 meters).
When I first started shooting the XCD 30/3.5, I was struck by its remarkable freedom from color aberrations of all kinds, such as in the Dolls series. Its much higher price (75% more) counts for a lot when it comes to color correction as well as wide-open sharpness.
