It would be great if owner feedback is supported by test measurements, which happens for all the trully excellent lenses. Relying on word of mouth alone is not what I want to do. In this case, the feedback is not only unsupported by optical test measurements of reliable reviewers but it is contradicted by those measurements.

While that may be the ideal , I would imagine most photographers are to busy enjoying taking  images in the real world and drawing conclusions from real world images, shooting test images and graphs would be like water torture to me. I've seen the 45 f1.8 not get stellar reviews on some sites but I'm still amazed when I take a image in the real world with it. Enjoy what you have lifes to short to worry about what you don't have.:)
