Vintage vs New Lens Shootout Review Featuring Rokinon Tamron Vivitar Kiron Glass

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

Steve Oakley sent us his awesome vintage lens shootout with several lenses from Rokinon, Tamron, Vivitar, and Kiron. I love the way Steve described what he was seeing! I’ve seen so many videos lately where they just throw up the charts or video and don’t tell you what they’re seeing. I’m not a lens chart expert (yet) and I don’t have experiences with tons of lenses, so it is good to hear what to look for.

Thanks to Steve for sharing!

Vintage vs New Lens Shootout Review Featuring Rokinon Tamron Vivitar Kiron Glass



Steve's description

Check out 2 new lenses against some 20 to 30 year old vintage glass. Surprising results in shooting resolution charts and real world images. In the mix are the Rokinon / Samyang 35 1.4 and Tamron 17-50 2.8 against classic vintage glass : vivitar 28 1.9, vivitar 28 f2 and kiron 28 f2
