Only test chart photos are convincing for me. I already know what f4 looks like. Subjective shots around the park and zoos are alright for point'n'shoots.

Are you planning to buy a lens to photograph test charts? What do you do with the finished prints? I can't imagine hanging a photo of a test chart on my wall but to each their own.

While MTF scores and test charts are useful in some instances but I'm far more interested in how the lens performs in the hands of a real photographer shooting a variety of non-test chart subject. I'm going to keep my 70-200 f/2.8 anyway but the new f/4 looked pretty solid in in the shots posted at FM.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

I only visit DPReview once every few months now but you can always count on the pixel-peeping nonsensical comments to be a mainstay.
