Do lenses have subjective qualities not shown in any technical specification?

Definitely. Some lenses can be magical.

Though there will be a number of posters who will dispute this and will try to ridicule those who can see it.

My belief is, they cannot see it, as some people for example cannot see color just black and white.

We has been disputing this at great lenght in this thread:
