DxOMark too often makes no sense.
5

I have seen this just too many times. DxOMark results that make absolutely no sense.

Here is just one example, the Samyang 14mm f/2.8 IF ED UMC, but you can see it on other lenses, figures that just make no sense, some of the figures on the canon STM make no sense either.

So, DxOMark claims this lens has only 1.5% distortion. Which compared to other lenses on DxOMark, this is extremely low, especially for a wide angle.

Yet, when you look up this lens on other sites, this lens has a MASSIVE amount of distortion.

And in reality, it does have a massive amount of distortion. Not low like DxOMark claims at all.

Does DxOMark just make these figures up or what? Why do they even have figures for lenses on full frame bodies that only fit on crop?

Finding issues with their distortion numbers being totally wrong, is easy, but who says their other numbers that aren't as easy to track down are correct? If their distortion figures are wrong, do none of their figures make much sense?

DxOMark.
