14-24 and 70-200 VRII missing - a catastrophe
« on: March 25, 2013, 11:37:36 pm »
This a comment for this page on the website
It's deeply, deeply unfortunate that DXO decided to publish something as significant as the D800 lens test results in comparative form BEFORE the Nikkor 14-24 and 70-200 VRII have been tested - the consequence being that they cannot be included in the results.
The result of this is that people, everywhere I read, on forums and blogs, say the same thing - that DXO has no credibility whatsoever any more since they don't have the most important lenses of all in their tests or results.
After all, only a few (those that read ALL your info here on your site) are aware that you are in fact testing these lenses (or are about to).
A bad mistake on your part, one that will take a long time to erase.
The damage is already done and it's very sad. Even if you DO publish the results for these lenses later, it will just look like a desperate attempt to save your reputation.
Your decision probably seems logical and reasonable to you, but not to anyone else.
Goodwill (credibility in this case) is a very important and terribly fragile commodity.

Why don't you go out and buy all the lenses and run your own group of tests and then setup a website and report back to us. Are you paying for this? Sound like a 4 year old that didn't get candy at the store. Yes those lenses should be included and I am sure they will be at some point. Hardly a catastrophe.

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

The 70-200mm review should be available in the coming weeks.

As for the 14-24mm, it is planned for around a month.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
