    There's already lots of discussion on these lenses on RU, but I wanted to throw our thoughts into the mix. Video includes some quick and dirty lens/flare tests.

    Nice test. Would have been a bit nicer to have seen the T2-T16 over a longer range of frames. Clearly T2 is softer than T16. But not clear from test whether lenses really sharpen up at T2.8, T4, T5.6 or T8. Congrats on being one of the first with a full set!

    Thanks for this test! I currently have an A set, which I'd like to round out with another lens (either the 32 or 80mm) and I can't quite decide. I figure the 32mm will rent more, but my heart wants that 80mm. Luckily once I put the deposit down for a single I have a few months to change my mind.

    Agreed - Sadly with youtube 4k compression it's hard to even accuratley see the difference across various t-stops in sharpness. The actual prores files clearly show that the lenses sharpen up quite a bit at T4 and 5.6 is the sweet spot.
