I'm aware of all this, hence me placing "outresolve" in inverted
commas. I would expect much higher lp/mm results in all the lens
tests if lenses really were diffraction-limited at f8. There's no
reason why an aberration-free optic would resolve less at f8 than
f5.6 on a 50D; with a high contrast target the 50D can resolve only
about 70% of what I'd expect an ideal lens to deliver at f8.

The only lens I listed that was reviewed by this site is the 50/1.8. It showed maximum resolution at f4.5 not f/8 and it had greater that Nyquist MTF50 on the 450D even though the camera anti-aliasing filter should ideally been removing all content above the Nyquist frequency.
