Summicron 90/2 vs 90/2 APO ASPH.
A few days ago I got a non-aspherical Summicron 90/2 made in Canada. It is very sharp wide open when shooting distant subjects (which will be its primary purpose). It handles very nicely on my M8. But the sheer excellence of this lens, which, as someone said, makes razors look dull, has put me into a grass is greener on the other side mood. Just how much better is new Aspherical version of this lens in terms of sheer optical performance? Are there any advantages to the non-aspherical version over the aspherical? I am thinking only in aesthetic terms.
How do the non-aspheric and aspheric versions compare in portraiture?
My lens is in virually mint condition and I paid just over a 100,000 yen for it.
The only bothersome thing about this lens is the push-pull hood. I've fixed it which a green rubber band stopper. Don't think that will hurt it.
