Anybody see any surprises with the DXO K3 lens scores

One thing that I saw that surprised me was the DA* 55mm rated several points lower in sharpness than the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art.  I know the Sigma 35 Art will likely set a new standard for lenses in that range (And the Big Boys are rightfully on high alert).  I recall the DA 55 to be extremely sharp on the K5 and this result did surprise me a bit.  K3 that demanding?  Anyone else see anything that surprised them about the tests?

Cheers.
