    That's a great little comparison; I'd love to see more of these. Thanks for posting this!

    Lucky guy to have so many lenses to compare. I'm not surprised that the 40-150mm held up well, I think it's a gretly underrated lens. I don't doubt the conclusions as to the 45 1.8 being a great lens optically, but I also think it's a point of diminishing returns compared to legacy 50's. I ot mine for free..I can't justify dropping 400$+tax just to autofocus and be a tiny amount better.

    Thanks! I may do more comparisons, but I had more 50s than anything else...seemed best to compare those. I just wish I still had my Zeiss 50 when I did the comparison to see how it stacked up.
