which is which game

As I'm home today with a wicked cold, what else but trot out the standard lenses for a little comparison. Yeah, these are all at max aperture, and I don't have an edge 100% clip (though I did make my own observations)...

So here's the bokeh game. Which lens is 1,2,3,4?

Guess it wasn't all that interesting (these things bore me, but sometimes boredom is good...)

anyway. The lesson for me was just how similar these lenses can be, and while there are situations where I can use one or another to better effect, it really does not matter all that much.

K100d, you got the SMC and Super correctly but got the 55 and 43 reversed.

nice test Nesster, i thought more people would play, or maybe you'd have to leave it up a bit longer.

seems like the coatings (none -> Super -> SMC) make a big difference in the colour, contrast and sharpness

Oh, I got it right, but I was afraid to say anything. 2 and 3 have more yellow photos on the bokeh test, and 3 is sharper than 2 for the object test.
Between 1 and 4, 1 had smaller circles of confusion, so I figured that was the F1.9.

Interesting game, but I don't think I could see a single photo in absence of the others and tell what lens took the shot.
