Poll: unquantifiable lens quality
Feb 25, 2014

Are there lens qualities that can't be objectively measured that make one lens better than another? MTF, distortion, chromatic aberration, etc. can all be measured, but are there additional factors (for example, "rendering") that are important to picture quality that can't be quantified.

This relates solely to image quality, not AF speed, build quality, etc.
