Lens compare

I think it would be neat if we could compare lenses like we do DSLR Comparison. Example: A50mm 1.4 vs FA50mm 1.7 and DA 50mm 1.8, then just have them lined up side by side comparing the physical differences. ie Aperture ring, Number of blades, Size, Weight and so on. Then user ratings for each category. It would also be great to compare across brands.

All the data is there but i'm not computer savvy enough to know how hard it would be to create something like that.

What does everyone think?

We're actually currently in the process of revamping the lens databases to make a comparison tool like this possible. Stay tuned!

The next step will be to start populating data for non-current third-party lenses. I will have a system in place for the community to help out with that.
