The table below provides download of high quality full-resolution JPEG files (Photoshop Save As JPEG compression level 9).
The files are straight out of Nikon Capture NX2 (“Standard”) and have NOT been sharpened as done for the comparison crops. This serves two purposes: first, the file sizes are about 1/3 less and second, sharpening obscures some of the differences.
You may view and/or print these files for your own personal use for purposes of evaluating the lenses. This right lapses when your subscription expires. Any other use is prohibited.
