No PBase account would be complete without that most revered of technical reports, the lens test. Photogeeks by the hundreds go to great (focal?) lengths to document the perfomance of this lens or that lens, sometimes in comparison to a similar lens made by another manufacturer. Those resolution charts and color comparisons are spellbinding and informative, but they reflect only the cold, technical side of a lens's life. What they universally omit is the more sensitive, personal side of performance. It is my hope that this lens test remedies that shortcoming.
