Lens Test w/ Zeiss ZE and CP2′s, Canon L Series and Leica R Glass

Shane Hurlbut has posted a lens test on his blog. The video is locked to the blog so you will have to click here to check it out.

We have been using Canon, Leica, and Zeiss lenses but haven’t had the chance to compare them all side by side. Shane saw this as a good learning exercise and asked us to put together a lens test. We used 18 lenses, lit the scenes with our home depot lighting kit, and spent a day shooting four scenarios to compare the aesthetics between the lenses for video. We kept our settings consistent between the lenses and here are our results. Take them with a grain of salt as it’s not a definitive test but more of a practical observation.
