I'm not a big fan of DXOMark but at the end of the day I'll peruse all available review sites when making a buying decision. So when looking at their lens reviews, I noticed that they give the Canon 85 1.8 the HIGHEST resolution score of ANY lens they've reviewed...including nikon, zeiss, sigma...etc. I know it's a very good lens but I find this hard to believe.
They say they're reviewing the 135L in October...I'm correct in assuming the 135 will score higher, right? OR, did they just get a fantastically sharp copy of the 85 1.8 when they did their review?
I'm going to buy the 135L, but I'm just curious as to what others think about this, and what the explanation is for their resolution score for the 85 1.8? http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Ratings/Optical-Metric-Scores
EDIT...a couple of posts have come in illustrating some of the inaccurate DXO "scores" for lenses:
1. 70-200 2.8 ii is somehow scored much lower than the orginal version, and much lower than the nikon, sigma, and sony 70-200's.
2. The canon 300 2.8 ii, probably the best lens Canon makes, scores a 15 from DXO. For all the lens scores that were scored using the 5d2 as the body, (66 of them listed) they rank the 300 2.8ii in 57th place out of 66 lens scores. For context, that's about a tie with the 16 score they gave the Tamron 28-300, and the 14 for the Canon 55-200.
