>>...But, I have picked and chosen my Nikon lenses *carefully* from amongst
the lot...<<

I agree wholeheartedly with your assessment of Nikon lenses. From time to
time someone voices an opinion like "the Nikkors produce a brittle" or
"they show bad bokeh". I have some Nikkors for which this is certainly true
(20/2.8 AIS, 35/2 AIS, 85/1.8 AF). Others like the 55/2.8 Micro AIS, the
105/4 Micro AIS and the 180/2.8 AF IF-ED produces images that are very
similar to those of my Leica M lenses. However, mixing images from these
two manufacturers´ lenses in a slide show you quickly realize that the
Nikkors exhibit a much warmer color rendition.
