    This was one way color consistency was achieved back in the day when color transparencies were the prime method for color image printing. Slight color variations do occur within the same manufacture's lens offering. What most did back then was to color match the entire system for a given lens, film, processing, lighting and all involved. The point of reference tool was a calibration certified color densitometer and certified gray card or McBeth color checker.

We were even curious if mixing German and Japanese etc really matters.

    Do you find yourself matching or mixing? Do you think it’s a tangible difference or just something we do for the sake of doing?

    Because the style of photography he practices prefers that everything in the image that did not move during exposure be sharp (See "Group F64). Bokah is a secondary consideration.

    I was at an exhibition the other day and it was so disconcerting to see images taken with lenses from different manufacturers and with different designs displayed side-by-side. My Gawd, the glaring contrast and color discrepancies were enough to make me dizzy! And all that different bokeh; I couldn't even look. I had to leave before I even noticed what the subjects of the photographs were!

    NOT!!!
