So what have you concluded from this experiment?

That there isn't too much difference. If I couldn't see them side by side, I wouldn't think that any were completely unacceptable!

You confirmed what traditionally was considered a good FL for people portraits 80-135mm in FF equivalent (most portrait lenses used to be 90-105mm). Below that the image becomes distorted and cartoonish, above that it becomes flat.

I agree completely.
