Using a different lens every week (ahmm… well) for 70+ weeks (or more)… ;)

Do 35 mm lenses have a higher…

… resolving power than medium and large format lenses?

Zeiss says:

“Our tests using real lenses, real cameras, real film and standard exposure conditions returned the following results:

  • 35 mm ZM lenses achieve up to 400 line pairs/mm on film. With ZF lenses we achieved about 300 lp/mm.
  • medium format lenses from Carl Zeiss for Hasselblad achieve up to 280 (250 mm Superachromat f5..6)
  • large format lenses from Carl Zeiss achieve up to 160 (75 mm Biogon f/4.5)”
