below 100mm Nikon wins more in lenses of the same class, for example 14-24, 16-35 VR, 35 F1.4G, 50 F1.8G, 85 G1.8G.

From 100mm onwards Canon has a clear advantage over nikon counter part., for example 100 F2, 100L, 135L,  70-200II, 70-300L, 100-400L. In fact since telephoto shots more often than not are shot at mid-range ISO, canon's low ISO DR disadvantage is not so obvious. So peopel who shoot while life or action should really stick to Canon.

Try the Nikon 105 DC.  One of the best lenses going.

105DC, and other fast telephoto lenses nikon made before later 2000s, all have rather terrible Longitudinal Chromatic Aberrations (by today's standard).

See how every thing is purple? Compare it to Canon 100 F2. The canon just as sharp but virtually no LoCA. half the price and you get an USM.

Same thing with 135 F2. Nikon's LoCA isĀ unbelievable.
