I agree---it's not about shooting brick walls. However, I plan to use this lens for some landscape and architecture work and dealing with such soft images for $1000 is a bit ludicrous. I take the test samples of a Brick wall because they are the most controlled "natural" environment and very quick to get an assessment.

For landscape and architecture, I would really consider getting a prime. The 16mm often isn't wide enough IMO, so something like the 12mm Zeiss, the 12mm Samyang/Rokinon or the 10-18mm Sony may be better options. Edge to edge sharpness will be very difficult to find on any 4.5X zooms.
