Would you like to guess ? Nikon/Kiron 135mm comparison

I recently bought on eBay two lenses, a Nikkor Q 135mm f/3.5 and a manual zoom Kiron 35-135mm f/3.5-4.5 and I was curious about how well they perform when directly compared.

 

In the picture (obtained in raw and processed identically for the two lenses), a crop of the central region at 100% was selected. Both lenses were open at f/11 with an exposure time of 1/320s and with manual focus.

 

The upper panel image is from the Nikon prime and the lower panel image comes from the Kiron zoom.
