Lenstip makes the 17mm look worse than e.g. photozone.

By using exempli gratia (e.g.) in this sentence, you are directly implying that photozone is one representative testing site of multiple such sites that make the 17mm look better than Lenstip.

When you preface a list with 'e.g.' you are implying that the list is incomplete, and that there are more examples that support the one you're offering. If that's not the case, it's misleading to preface your list with 'e.g.'.

I don't tend to look at many sites... But now I checked out dxomark as well.

We again have to make do with what is there. The 20mm was not reviewed. The 12, 17 and 25 are. Results... The 12 and 17 both score an overall 19 and the 25 scores 21. Yes the 12 scores higher on resolution than the 17, but the question is how much that difference is in terms of actual perceived sharpness.

In short, you've still not offered any additional examples to accompany the photozone report.
