don't mention the type II tele lenses here - you might get serious bashing for that

It's not your mentioning of your God-lenses that gets you bashed. You can lick them as far as I'm concerned and you can construct altars in you house and sacrifice mice to them, if that makes you happy.

It's your constant denigration of perfectly good lenses with stellar performance because you didn't happen to choose them. For a novice reading this rubbish, it's likely to put him off sensible purchases. You are talking about differences measured by people whose life is measurement, differences which are difficult to see in results, and even if present really contribute little to the merit of a photograph.

An awful lot of the merit of photography has to do with light and lighting. Have you heard of that?

Your measurement gurus never talk about it because it can't be measured, but it sure as hell can be seen..
