Second retest results!

Ok, I finally got around to performing another series of tests over the weekend with the Tamron and Nikon lenses again. Both lenses shot under the same conditions within 5 mins of each other: subject at a distance of approx 40-50 ft, outdoor, 200mm f/5.6, shutter speed 1/125, N80 mounted on tripod with cable release, Kodak E100VS slide film. Both slides scanned with Minolta Dual Scan film scanner-same settings for both slides. Cropped images from the center of the frame with jpeg compression of 8 in PS7.

Is the Nikon a dud?
