  1. We meet again :) I actually remember that previous shot, it looked familiar. Posted 2 years ago
    1. : Thanks! this two are a good comparison between nikkor (vintage) lenses and Sigma :P
      color, sharpness, bokeh and lightning is so much better on the previous V. cardui shot. Agree?

      1. A tricky comparison! Just to give my opinion:

        color: yes, previous shot appears warmer but this could also be due to conditions?
        sharpness: both are sharp, but full screen your new shot looks slightly sharper
        bokeh: subjective, seem like different apertures? New shot is softer in the background
        lighting: yes, better on the previous shot but if daylight not something within control

        Like I said, tricky comparison. Overall the previous shot I find more attractive because of the pose of the butterfly and the warmer light. In any case they are both awesome :)
