It makes no sense comparing it with FF lenses  - apples with apples.
The samy 16mm is equivalent to a 24mm FOV in FF; so DxO is being silly and bringing rigged results this way.
When one changes to other lenses in equivalent FF range, or to a FF camera with given lenses, the results are substantialy different.
Not to say the Samy is not good at all - just should not be compared the way they did
Canon shooter, but anything goes as ammunition (L, non L, Zeiss, Leica, Rokinon,Sigma)
