I'm reading things here pretty differently. The impression I get is that people are frustrated because someone (and not just any someone, but a someone who has never even used the lens in question) insists on telling people that their senses are deceiving them. I mean, it would be a little bizarre if I started telling a group of strangers that the sky is red when it was very clearly blue and that any impression of a certain blue-ness they might be seeing was nothing more than perceptual bias on their part.

At least one poster has noted the condescension present in some of his posts. This is especially apparent when he insists on informing people that he knows their own reality better than they know it themselves.

I conducted a test of the AF of the 20/1.7 against the 12/2 and the 45/1.8. I have asked those who disputed the relevance of this test on the ground that it didn't include the 17/1.8 whether they are claiming that the 17/1.8 has noticeably faster AF than the 12/2 and 45/1.8. So far noone has answered that they do make such a claim. Are you making it? If not, what is your point?
