Nonsense: My saying all the time

Check out their test of the canon 16-35 f/2.8 II if you are still in doubt. They seriously claim that at 16mm the borders become less sharp on stopping down. E.g. the lens is sharper at f/2.8 compared to f/5.6. Any fool who has been using the lens will tell you the opposite (obviously, as common sense tells us, no currently available full frame lens is diffraction limited at f/2.8 lens) DXo actually insisits on this result despite several notices I send to them and posted in their comments section. No to mention that every other review site differs with DXo.

Their results may not be wrong in a technical sense (I cant judge that) but their results obviously do not resamble any practical usage.
