Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 VRII and Nikkor 14-24mm

This a comment for this page on the website
I don't believe that the long time awaited Nikkor 70-200mm VRII test will come (see old comments in the database). A lot ot members asked for it a long time ago and still nothing happens! If you don't believe me go and search in the database.

And some of my questions were not replied! It looks like the lens "Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 VRII" shouldn't be mentioned anymore.

Hello!

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

Both lenses (70-200mm f/2.8 VRII) and the 12-24mm f/2.8 will be published within 2 weeks.

The reason we could not published the 70-200 f/2.8 VR II test results is that we encountered many problems with bad samples.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team

Very interesting! I just got through casually testing my old (90's era) Nikon 80-200mm against Nikon's latest 70-200mm (rented from Samy's Los Angeles store for a shoot tonight) and immediately came to this site to help determine if I have a rental lens that needs servicing.

I certainly hope this is the case as my old lens is noticeably sharper!
