In this category all the lenses perform more or less similarly. What’s interesting, though, the most expensive Nikkor is the worst here. The other three lenses, the cheapest Samyang including, fare a bit better and their results, within the margin of error, are the same. The Samyang keeps very good company here as its results don’t lag behind those of more expensive rivals.
