Bruce, that is an absolutely stunning slide show. Anyone viewing that collection of images will be biased towards the lens, but honestly, I have a feeling that many other lenses in your hands would have produced nearly identical if not identical images. Would you be generous enough to point out some parts of various images to indicate what this lens does that other, say, standard Nikon pro-level, lenses can not?

Thank you so much for viewing the images and your nice comment.

I am not a lens tester. I've used many high quality lenses for different purposes and ended up using the CV more because of the way it handles, and the consistency I get through the entire range of settings.

If you wish technical comparisons with images, there are numerous threads on this lens on nikongear.com. including one I started when I was shopping.
