An older, well-seasoned photographer member of the Boynton Beach Camera Club (to which I belong) recently started a Nikon special interest group whereby he gives instruction on Nikon's top end DSLR's like the D800, D600, D300, D7100 and others.

In the first class he gave us some valuable web sites to use to further our Nikon education. (one of them was this site!)

Anyway, another site he recommended we use is: http://www.dxomark.com He claimed that this site is the standard for testing lenses.

I looked over the ratings of various high-end Nikon lenses, and to my dismay, the ratings were rather poor - low to average ratings for most lenses. What is that all about?

I've browsed several of the member galleries on the nikonians.org site and saw many outstanding photos with information regarding the lenses used to take those photos. I then looked at those lense ratings on dxomark.com, and the scores are fair to poor. Am I missing something? Are the lense scores on dxomark.com just way too snobbish or uppity? Are their rating standards unrealistically too high?

Can anyone enlighten me on this issue?

Thanks
