MTF Charts of the DFA24-70 Vs Tamron A007


They look very close, but there are minor differences, probably due to sample variation or measurement method differences.

Size Comparison Again! Pentax FF Vs Canon 5D Mark III

This is what I have compared with the images got from the camerasize.com. Here we go, the Pentax FF image has been accurately resized:

Photodo MTF Scores for Pentax FF and MF Lenses

Maybe it's time to check and review the old figures, there are at least six months to go! ;-p

And, the Pentax lenses I own are marked in Bold, although not all of my FF/MF Pentax lenses were tested by the Photodo, e.g., my FA31 and 77 Limiteds! :-D
