The test was not conducted properly.

First of all the degrees of blur in the first and second pictures are very close, which can be easily influenced by variation in the lens, if f1.4 is not quite f1.4 and f2.8 is not quite f2.8. More lens of the same kind should be tested. Second, and most important of all, the picture shot with the 25mm lens is slightly out of focus, making it impossible to know how it should be compared to the one taken by the 50mm lens, which focused right on the flash head.
