Thanks for the comparison. I agree, I can see just a hint of better contrast with the 10-100. I see this mostly in the foliage. Like the comparisons of pro grade glass at lens rentals shows, there can be enough variation to make it a YMMV situation.

I wonder how the lens competes with the standard kit zoom and the 30-110 at shorter FLs. It would be convenient not to have to switch lenses as often.

One thing I've noticed about the N1 system is that the lenses are quite a bit better than their SLR counterparts. The Kit lens is better then the kit lenses with DSLRs (Although it is not perfect). The 30-110 is miles better then any of the 70-300s I've had though the years. The 18.5 is sharper wide open than any of the 50mm f1/1.7 or 1.8 lenses I've had.
