This video is part of one of the largest lens tests ever conducted. With over 300 videos in 4K, you can watch and compare each of ShareGrid’s 85 individual Full Frame prime lenses at various T-stops using their one-of-kind “Quad-player.” The Quad-player allows you to simultaneously play up to 4 videos so you can experience the most thorough process in comparing cinema lenses.

The ‘Ultimate Full Frame Lens Test‘ is Part 3 of ‘The Ultimate Cinema Lens Library‘ which consists of over 500 videos and 40 sets of lenses to compare using our Quad-player. The library now includes full-frame, Super 35 anamorphic, spherical, vintage, modern, zooms, still lenses, and even an anamorphic adapter.

It is great to see ShareGrid, Old Fast Glass, and everyone involved provide these tests as a free resource.

If you have been looking at a set of full-frame capable cinema prime lenses this is a fantastic resource.
