    The Topcor lenses, sold along with the focal-plane shutter Topcon cameras in this country for many years by Charles Beseler, are outstanding in every way. Biggest drawback was the Exakta lens mount. Optical quality and mechanics were superb. But they were not cheap, to be sure.

    What he said. Tamron XR AF-D f/3.5 28mm to 300mm compares to the Nikon AF-D 28mm to 200mm. The Nikon has a slight edge because zoom lenses with narrower zoom ranges are slightly sharper.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
