Lens Resolution: Golden reflected UV ultraviolet photography VI

Today I would like to use those recent "golden shots" of autumnal Rudbeckia fulgida leafs to show the different performance of lenses, an older 50mm enlarger lens and the 94mm CERCO quartz fluorite lens. Distance to the leaf was chosen to achieve about matching images. Also here my special "golden" processing for these shots has been used.

Here a diptych to make comparison easier, Cerco lens is left:

It gets pretty obvious, that the Cerco lens delivers a much higher resolution and sharpness.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
