DC lense comparison and samples

Hi there, For those interested, there are a series of lens comparisons of the new DC lenses versus the best sigma lenses at a Japanese website that has been talked about previously. 61.206.42.242/images/fujieda/sd9/lens_test.html

They compare the 18-50mmDC to the 15-30 EX at 18mm and 30mm and to the 50mm macro at 50mm. They also compare the 55-200 DC to the 50mm macro at 55mm and to the 105 macro at 102mm and to the 180mm macro and the 100-300 F4 at approx. 200mm. Both DC's appear weaker at the higher end of their range particularly. The site is in japanese so its an eyeball comparison. There are no 12-24mm EX pics or comparisons as yet. Good comparison of primes versus zoom at all ranges (except no 120-300 f2.8 ex pics). The 100-300 f4 as well as all the macros and the 15-30 look really good. The 70-200 looked soft with weak color rendition at 200mm. Just thought you might be interested to see these comparison shots.
