Just curious regarding these results on telephoto lenses on the A77. Just curious why the best lens on this list, the sony 70 - 200 g, only achieves 10 P-MPix?

Are these scores to be trusted? Just trying to understand why a77 is so demanding. Even other 24 Megapixel cameras from other brands do not seem to be so demanding of their longer lenses.

We sure can't believe, it's just an overall IQ in a combo for itself (specific lens attached to a specific camera)!

We have to make our own interpretations because, voluntarily or not, tests lie! It have some proof of that.

We have to make cross-checking between different sources to be sure. But it's virtually impossible to find exactly same combos and same tests protocols at the same time!

So at this point, the question is not 'if' tests lies but 'why' some lenses are really underrated /or overrated?

The best should be to make our own tests (when it's possible)

Last but not least, why dPr periodically change his "Studio Scene comparison", which hinders us to be able of making comparisons over time!
