I think DXO is overrated,

But then for the people who make their purchase choices based on said site's results, I guess it does make sense they would link to that site as confirmation.

I hope you're not talking about me.

I bought the 85mm 1.8g the day it came out back in February. My local camera shop was one of the first in the U.S. to have it available, and well before there were any reviews for it out there. Personally, I think it is an excellent lens, though not without flaws.

I, too, think that there are limitations in the DxO mark testing methodologies, and my guess is that they would agree. I merely posted the link because I stumbled across it and thought others might be interested.

As to whether I think these test results are definitive or the gospel from on high: Well, I did place a question mark at the end of my thread title now, didn't I?
