Wait... are you trying to say... that shooting flat test charts is not the meaning of photography?

Shooting flat charts means as much to photography as testing a sports car on a straight line for acceleration and top speed - while it is not what you use it for, it is a good indication of how good it will be in certain aspects for what you will use it for.

In certain very limited aspects. Of course, if all you're doing are drag races those figures would be relevant; same for lenses, if all you're shooting are test charts and brick walls.

Otherwise, you'd need a better, more complete understanding of the lens' characteristics.
