Andrew Stoud DOP Comments:
These tests were prompted by the post guys who were looking for nice big wide shots with lots of detail and saturated colour. The sun was quite high in the sky and it was very unflattering light.
The camera was set at 320 ASA and exposure evalution was made taking meter readings off my pentax spotmeter set at 500 ASA.
Zeiss standards were the lenses.
It was my intention to base my exposures entirely off my meter readings and I treated it like a reversal or BW stock. I gave it a bit more for the highlights.
The wide/long shots were shot on 20mm and 180mm at around T-22 with a Pola. The base stop was around T-45 to T-90. I didn't have any more ND handy. In my experience these lenses don't resolve quite as well at deep stops. You might get more depth of field but the trade off is in lost resolving power.
The ability of any lens to resolve detail is dependent on many variables, its also a subjective and relative thing
