> When I first got into photography years ago I was told that a professional could order a Nikon lens and that Nikon would test the lens 
before shipping.  I was told that they would sometimes go through 6 to 10 
lenses before selecting one.  I don't know on which side of the water the 
testing would take place, but supposedly that's how they broke into the 
market.  The information came from the rep who introduced the RB67 to the 
NY market.
