It’s immediately obvious that the thicker adaptor makes a big difference to the performance of the Nikon 15mm. The focal plane is predictably flat, and centre frame sharpness is now better than the Sigma, reversing the previous result.

Out near the corner, in this 100% crop showing both near and far field objects, the Nikon 15mm behaves like an entirely different lens: outperforming the Sigma 12-24mm by almost as great a margin as that by which it was outclassed in the previous test.
