There’s only so much that can be tested in home without fancy gear (MTF charts and the like) so I did a few tests that gauge common aesthetic qualities, using techniques that are often recommended for testing at home.
It’s not super scientific, but it does give some further input on the lens and what you might expect. And all tests were done as compared to the Canon 50/1.8 II – each shot was taken on a sturdy tripod, and all settings were kept the same, with the lenses switched out for each shot.
- Sharpness (center, corner, edge)
- Flare (not a great test, I admit, but shows some difference and similarities)
- Bokeh (spoiler: the Yongnuo wins)
- Chromatic Aberration
