    I am surprise that most " NIKON" lens are "average" only !!

    I believe .. Nikon lens still " hairy" better then Canon ! ( non tele, for Tele lens, Canon is the best ) but Canon Camera body is "hairy" better !

    The Original !

    Nikon has failed to impress me the past few years which Is why I'm such a Canon Fan. Canon has the best Lens' and Cameras IMO. Nikon fell behind in the industry, just were not producing enough cameras. Still have great stuff for sure, but I dont feel they are quite at the level of Canon who is #1 in the undustry versus Nikon in 4th.

    Good stuff here. Taking various exposures of a scene and using Two-Exposure Contrast Masking looks cool.
