Thats interesting Ray, thanks for taking time to show the crops.
The Makro-Symmar is softer in these but its hard to tell at 200% since I'm used to using 100% view.
Not sure if I mentioned this before, but I am about 60% of the way into a high-end 1x test including, Scanner Nikkor ED, Printing Nikkor 105 A,
Makro Varon CAS 85, Makro-Symmar 120, Voigtlander APO Lanthar 120, stacked lenses, and a few others on a Sony A7III with and without pixel shift.
Already working on images there have been some major surprises
The results will shock some people.
Found there thread I started, I thought I mentioned this before:
