What do you mean? The test results for MTF from Photozone appear to be higher (for the center of the lens,) than those from Luminous Landscape.

What I meant was that the review by luminous landscape was extremely positive on this lens, actually comparing it to the Nikon 14-24. By viewing the actual images and results from the lens you can see that the reality is it's an exceptional lens. Photoszone's  testing of lenses is something that almost everyone uses to compare lenses when purchasing, but which I feel somewhat lacking in real world testing. By comparing it to exceptional lens like to Nikon photographers can get a better feel for the capabilities in field use. I would learn much more about a lens like a Nikon 50mm if it were compared shot for shot with a Zeiss 50. I also tested the Sony 10-18 against my Nikon 14-24 and was surprised by the Sony's ability.

It seems that Photozone's test results are not out of line for this one, just their interpretation of them.
