Dear Colleagues,

I detest pixel peeping and other technical obsessions but there is value in putting a new piece of gear through a few simple tests. I have done so with the much talked about Nikon 70 - 200 mm VR (after all, my local dealer has a 2 week "no questions asked" return policy). I put it up against the 70 - 300 mm VR, the legacy 200 mm Nikkor "Q" (purchased 40 years ago) and the Sigma 150 - 500 set to 200 mm.

The new Nikkor is a stunning lens but I was surprised/pleased how well the competition did.

Mostly for fun and to establish expectations. You are invited to review the page here:


I hope you will find something useful there but, if not, I apologize in advance for wasting your time.

I will be keeping this exceptional lens.

Best wishes,
