Canon lenses are much worse than Nikon's? Should I stop planning buying 5D II?
Dec 9, 2008

Hi folks,

first of all, I am a Canon user with my 10D and 70-200 IS f2.8 and other 3 lenses for 7 years. I believed that Canon is good and eventually it will leave Nikon far behind.

However, today I found this lens test web site:
http://www.photozone.de/Reviews/overview

And according to the tests of it, both Nikon's 24-70 and 70-200 are far superior to those of Canon, in Vignetting, MTF resolution test, and Chromatic Aberrations.
Here are the links:
24-70:

70-200

Canon:

this result plus recent 5D II vs D700 tests really shook my desire of buying 5D II. Now I am considering to sell my Canon gears and jump boat. What do you guys think? Can you give me more confidence to Canon?
