    in this newsgroup ?

    thanks.

    My "Subjective Lens Evaluations, Mostly Nikkors" is good for MANY
    Nikkors (and a few others), but are mostly for MF and AF full-frame
    lenses (there is a small section at the end for Nikon DX lenses). It is at
    www.ferrario.com/ruether/slemn.html - and it includes several URLs
    for other good Nikkor lens review sites.

    Catch as catch can.

    I usually check at www.photozone.de first, they have some brief reviews
    and technical testing of a fairly large selection of digital SLR
    lenses. I also check at photodo.com and fredmiranda.com, sometimes.

    Whether you can trust these reviewers is another question; what looks
    fine to them may not to you - I wouldn't sell the farm based on any one
    reviewer's say-so. A lens that performs well on one system may not on
    the next, but in general good glass is good glass.

    Another approach might be to google your lens of interest + "review"; I
    always get a few hits this way. The quality of reviews you'll get can
    be more than a little spotty, but that's the nature of the internet
    beast.

    I went there expecting a survey of lenses from different manufacturers
    and found only Nikon lenses. Avoid unless you are a slave to Nikon.
