A 30x40 print made with Nikon lenses on film looks great until you compare 
it with something else.  Compare Galen Rowell's prints with prints made 
using better equipment and you'll see that from a technical POV Rowell's 
photos were not particularly good, so his prints by themselves don't 
illustrate the relative merits of the lenses he used.
