Definitely.  A lot of quantitative differences just don't translate to IQ in real life, even under ideal conditions.  When you mix in all the variables that go with real life photography, they're inconsequential.  The differences shown in that chart are just not going to translate to anything meaningful in 99.9999+% cases.
