Now that the rush of elation about getting my new lens is over, I've been looking critically at the initial results, and decided to to do a little measurebating. I'd like to solicit some opinions on the results. Comparisons are between the Nikon 60/2.8 micro, the Nikon 28-70/2.8, and Nikon 80-200/2.8. Shots were taken on tripod, using the self timer to trigger the shutter. These are unresized crops". Processing was limited to auto-levels. The first image is each set is of the 60mm prime, followed by the 28-70mm/2.8 at 70mm, and the 80-200mm/2.8 at 80mm. At full aperture View attachment 6749 View attachment 6750 At f/4 View attachment 6751 View attachment 6752 View attachment 6753 At f/5.6 View attachment 6754 View attachment 6755 View attachment 6756 At f/8 View attachment 6757 View attachment 6758 View attachment 6759 It seems that the 28-70/2.8 doesn't get competitive until f/5.6. Is this normal, or is there a problem?
