Re: Anybody see any surprises with the DXO K3 lens scores

Most lens tests are done at 10x the focal length, however this is still usually a lot closer then some lenses were typically intended to be used at.

If that's true, these scores from point of real photographic purposes are unlikely usefully at all.

And no surprise that DA 35 Ltd Macro scores so high (relative to other lens) - probably because it is short focal length macro which is the only lens in Pentax lineup that so closely matches the test conditions.
