Some of the older lenses..while perhaps not as good wide open or close..
Are stunning at F5.6 or F8..
Some of the newer lenses..while better matched at all their F stops..fail to reach the highest resolutions and shadow detail of the older lenses at their best F stops.
In other words..across the board..the newer lenses perform better..
But at 1 or 2 f stops..the DR cant be beaten..if using a high resolution film stopped down.
On digital A7..the DR is just barely ok..
But on film in the right conditions..
