One thing....

..and this applies to all lenses.

Quoting DXO mark etc works fine for the average lens of that type, or should, BUT your lens maybe be a lot better, average, or worse.

Test it.

Two of the best lenses I ever had, in the days of film, were Tamron zooms. They were outstanding and were it not for the advent of autofocus, I'd still have them. So, if you can, test..
