We also have to understand that sharpness is in fact an important aspect for the majority of people (can we call them "the mass"?) and the reviewers know this and has to do it. Sadly bokeh tests doesn't interest, even if (i personally think) most reviewers are quite good at talking about it. It does often get a very small chapter in reviews, sadly. It seems sharpness, ca and purple fringing and such things gets a lot of attention. A lens like the 50 1.8G is not designed for bokeh, its just to darn corrected. Legendary Pentax lens designer Mr Jun Hirakawa (mr pixie dust :D) was some of those lens engineers that choose to not "over-correct", hence great lenses like the FA Ltd trio can produce bad test results by modern standards... but oh my... those lenses sure makes sweet images.
