1 Best Landscape lenses for D810

Best ultra-wide primes:
Zeiss Distagon 15mm and Samyang 14mm, high end lenses

The best performing ultra-wide model on the Nikon D810 overall is the beautifully made $2,950 Zeiss Distagon T* 2,8/15 ZF.2 , however, it’s not quite the sharpest of those tested. The Samyang 14mm f2.8, in second place with a DxOMark lens score of 27 points, has a higher peak sharpness at 27P-Mpix. Peak sharpness alone isn’t everything though, as uniformity of sharpness across the field is more valued, especially in ultra-wides like this. Both have curvature of field but it’s really only slight in the Zeiss whereas it’s pronounced on the Samyang and particularly so at the maximum aperture.
