A big thank Adrian for your link. Your website has directly finished into my favorites. So much useful information in it ;-) A shame I did not find it before.

With regard to lens reviews, I already knew photodo (a pity they stopped in 2000!) and photo.net. I also read attentively the comments on photographyreview, but I have to say that I'm not fully satisfied. I'm a bit disappointed that no website proposes extensive reviews of new lenses, that include tests on the resolution/contrast at different focal lengths, measures of distorsion, vignetting, effective aperture and so on. In France, the magazine "Chasseur d'images" gives very complete lens reviews, and I hoped that something similar was already existing on the net. Seems this is not the case ;-(

Personally, I'm looking for reviews on lenses with a large focal length range. I know quality is not as good as more usual telezooms, but I would like to travel very light. These last years, Sigma, Tamron and Canon have proposed some ultra-compact 10x lenses. In particular, the 28-300 F3,5-6,3 XR Tamron lens weights no more than 430g and has received good comments in general. Unfortunately these are only comments, and not a full review...

Glad you liked it Pierre :-)

Chasseur d'images have an online presence here:
http://www.photim.com
Although I can't see any reviews online. If you can find them please post a link!

If you do find a site with MTF charts of modern lenses I'd be very interested :-)
