Re: DxO Mark and pentax lenses

Are you comparing lenses on similar cameras? For lenses that can cover full frame, like most Sigmas for example, scores are reported using a full-frame camera. To compare to Pentax, you have to change the FF camera to an APS-C.

Even after ensuring that both bodies are similar, I don't pay much attention to DXOMark scores because they don't correspond with what I see in field conditions. Hue, contrast, bokeh and flare resistance are critically important to me, and are not measured in DXO lens tests.
