Sure, the "Nikon Trilogy", the 3 best Nikon f/2.8 G AF Zoom lenses are really good but they are bigger than anything similar I've had with Olympus. The 14-24 mm f/2.8 ($1997) is slightly bigger than the 7-14 mm f/4, but Nikon shooters complain about having to lug the big heavy beast around. The standard Nikon 24-70 mm f/2.8 ($1887) is bigger than the 14-54 by a long shot yet about the same size as the 14-35 mm f/2. The Nikon 70-200 m f/2.8G VRII ($2397) is the same size as the Olympus 35-100 mm f/2. If it were an f/2 it would be huge

Slightly bigger???  What the heck are you talking about???  The Nikkor 14-24 weighs at least 3 times the weight of the Pany 7-14 and is MUCH bigger. similarly the Nikkor 70-200 is GARGANTUAN compared to the Oly 35-100. I know because I just sold my Nikkor lenses.
