Look, like the others said, the digi-picture.com used to be quite "heavy" pro-Canon web, it is run by a Canon fanboy. It can or cant mean anything but at least it is really interesting that more Nikon lenses look kind of crap based on their "tests" while the same lenses do quite well (and often better than Canon glass) in tests of photozone.de or slrgear.com.

Comparing some lenses myself, I can say that my personal findings more or less match the results of www.photozone.de. This applies to both Canon and Nikon glass.

Honestly, both Canon and Nikon have some sh*t glass in their slables which is to be avoided (e.g. Nikon 80-400) but in reality the differences among the modern/recent lenses are much less visible between these two brands than it may seem at first sight based on various forums and tests.

Looking at the 85mm results, I don´t think Canon would be better than Nikon in terms of resolutin in this case:

But Canon is definitely no slouch either, I think in practice they can be considered +/- on the same level (i.e. excellent lenses).
