MTF: SMC-135/2.5 vs D-FA-100/2.8 macro

Here's an interesting test result comparing the performance of an old SMC lens with a new FA series lens. These are MTF50 figures measured by photozone.de and are directly comparable.

Welcome to Photozone!
The vertical scales are the same. There is not much difference between the optical performance of the old & new lenses.

I have the super-tak version of the 135/2.5 and am pleased with it. I was glad to find this data because such direct comparisons are rare in my experience.

This result will undoubtedly make my LLBA* even worse.

Dave, you should be glad that they haven't test the A*135/1.8.
