Personally I just don't think there is any value to DXO. It just never seems to match my real world experience.

Do you own the 10-100mm lens? can you post some of your unedited "real world experience" samples to illustrate how the lens sharpness, distortion and CA stack up vs the DxO findings?

Nope don't own it, but DXO ratings are pointless to me (of course your mileage may vary). I don't concern myself with graphs and charts, I take a lens and use it and if I am pleased with the results than I feel comfortable with my purchase. I never agree with their findings and don't understand that latest trend in using them as a guide, I'd much rather speak to photographers who have used a lens than bother myself with numeric figures that really can't represent how a lens captures an image: there are too many variables and conditions to take into consideration and of course the end result is purely subjective and simply cannot be measured.
