    IF I'm not wrong, both brands are of same build (glass), same manufacturer and same packaging, but different name. I can't really tell you which is better, but you do know that it's impossible to turn all the way to the maximum stop in broad daylight right? It will have a huge X across the image.

    Crossing banding does not happen with this setup:

    Please note that the example looks like it is shot with a long focal length. Cross banding happens more at wider focal lengths. The wider the focal length, the less stops you will get before X-banding appears.
