Best? So, it's the lightest? And has the greatest zoom range? Is unprecedented in it's telephoto capabilities?
People that market "the best" anything drive me nuts. Maybe it's the sharpest in the corners wide open. Maybe it has the truest color representation and saturation. Great, but that doesn't make it "best" in a million different other scenarios.
Sorry, just saying that "best" doesn't consider need. It's not the best sports lens. It's not the best travel lens. So saying it's the best lens without any qualifiers is just blatantly wrong.
Sticking with a favorite, car analogies: a McLaren might be the best car if you're going to the track, but not if you're towing your boat to the lake or picking up friends from the airport. So you can't just say a McLaren is the best car, just like it's inaccurate to say that this is the best lens.
