Exit Pupil Distance

The position of the exit pupil has a big effect on how well a legacy lens will perform when used with a digital sensor instead of film. This article on the Lensrentals blog has a good explanation of the effect, and also contains a table with the exit pupil distance for many lenses.

To expand that table, I recently started to measure the exit pupil position of lenses I had access to. My measurements are not that precise, so the numbers might differ from those in the lensrentals article by up to 1-2mm.
