Informal lens test up for viewing

  1. I had shot some family photos this weekend and had a few frames to burn to finish the roll, so I did a quick lens test for four Nikkors that could be considered ?normal? lenses. They are the manual focus AI / AIS versions of the 50mm f/1.4, the 50mm f/1.8, the 55mm f/2.8 Micro-Nikkor and the 35mm f/1.4. This was not to be a scientific overall test, but simply a quick glance at how these lenses render the out of focus part of the scene based on the aperture.
    Shown side-by-side as they are presented, you can see the background blur, and if you click on the small image, you can see the larger version to get a better view.
    All images received the exact same manipulation, just some sharpening and contrast boost to get the jpegs to match the photos.
    So what does this all mean? Probably not much. Anyhow, take a look if you are interested.
