Re: Roger, this test was a great contribution

Absolutely Nikon is next! I'm going to take next week off: we took delivery on a very special new toy today (full optical bench) and they're sending someone down to train us to use it starting Monday. After that Nikon is up.

I'm really interested in what the Nikon tests will show: I've had the impression for years that Nikon has had the more accurate phase AF. But this little test is just a tiny subset of what it's about. So I don't know if we'll find Nikon has always been this accurate, or maybe Canon's passed them up now? But even then it's just for this one little subset: center point on a still target. Things would probably be dramatically different testing Servo or off center, or any of several other things.
