In comparing different lens scores I'm quite confused to see some of his zooms scoring higher than some primes. Would you please explain why this is, or more likely how I'm interpreting it.

One of the Sigma 35 ART to the 35FL of Nikon's 24~120. You will see the Nikon is scoring higher numbers which makes no sense to me. I have seen this...
My camera choices are Nikon D800e or Olympus OMD 1. I have 1st generation VR 70-200 2.8f for the Nikon and 40-150 f 2.8 for the Olympus. Graduations indoors so no flash and will have to use high ISO. I do have some faster lens but the distances to me are such to require use of telephoto. Both lens take great pics but my memory seems to point to the 70-200 as the faster focusing which will be important. Any other suggestions on fast focus that is needed. --jay coffsky

What's the purpose? What's the benefit of introducing this confusion?
While photographing the Governor today, my venerable D800Extreme began to show black in the lower quarter frame about every 5th shot. I have seen this before and it required a new shutter. The serial number is < 1000 and ordered the day it was announced, it is way out of warranty. Nikon.com lists 16 authorized repair "stations" in the lower 48 but lists them as "independent businesses", with prices "not subject to review by Nikon". I am wondering about quality and turnaround time. Any...
