Another boring Nikon vs Zeiss post

By Jorge Torralba

Nothing scientific here. You have all read how much I love Zeiss and the Nikon 28mm 2.8 AIS

Well, here is a simple uncontrolled comparison. The Nikon was shot at ISO 7200 and the Zeiss at 1800. Don't ask me why. I just picked up the camera and did my stuff. Both shot wide open. Nikon at 2.8 and Zeiss at 2.0

Anyway, here you go.

I focused on the Made in Japan label. This was just playing around without any proper control. It was the Zeiss 25mm f2. I too prefer the Nikon 28 rendering. :)

Interesting, especially since I owe the Ai-S 28mm f/2.8 (and the 20mm Ai-S f/2.8 and f/3.5), Jorge. But tell me, where exactly did you set the focus? Did you set the focus at exactly the same spot with both lenses?

Which Zeiss-lens did you use?

It seems to me that the Nikon has a slight advantage when it comes to corner sharpness if you check out the 1/X-key, but I am not sure.

Thanks for such interesting comparisons.
