7Artisans 35mm f/1.4 vs. Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 lens comparison


Here is a quick side by side comparison between the new 7Artisans 35mm f/1.4 lens priced at $430 and the latest version of the Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH lens priced at around $6,000 (special thanks to the always helpful Vi Vante for providing the limited edition 35mm Summilux lens used in this test):


The JPG photos were not manipulated (SOOC: straight out of the camera). Lens detection was turned off. The full set of JPG files is available on Flickr (10 shots from the 7artisans and 10 shots from the 35mm Summilux). The DNG files can be downloaded at Dropbox and WeTransfer. Most of the sample photos were taken wide open. Here are a few examples:
