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

Spot on, and there are plenty of images and reviews from real photographers in real world situations that can be found on the internet with a very quick search for anyone who actually wants to see them. Photographs, not measurements. That is what we are trying to produce isn't it?
