Luma Tech sent us a set of their Illumina lenses to test out. We posted our findings on our blog, if you ever shoot with Super Speeds you should read this.

Given their age, there can be a lot of variation between Super Speeds, especially introduced de-centration of elements due to substandard servicing (particularly the 18mm). Just mentioning it as a caveat to these sort of lens comparisons.

 

Also, there's no mention of the focal lengths used in this comparison. I've heard of issues with the 18mm and 25mm Illuminas, it would have been interesting to see them compared to the Super Speed wides. The 25mm Super Speed is often the weakest link in that series, from my experience.
