HD DA 20-40, What's the secret sauce? Hard facts/pics only please!

Sorry, I KNOW the issues of the Ltd range has been beaten, broken at the wheel, and then some. Please try to avoid opinion.

I've checked all reviews I can find online, and honestly, why is the HD DA 20-40 Ltd like CNY3000 used when the Tamron A016 non vc 17-50 2.8 is below CNY1000?

I have seen a FEW really awesome shots which display incredible color and contrast in absolutely awful (British) weather  but otherwise the shots look rather plain to me.

Can someone link to good shots that stand out due to the fact that the 20-40 was used?

And can someone sum up facts that make the 20-40 stand out?

I shoot a K-3 and I try to focus on the picture  not on technical issues, there's more to a picture than absolute sharpness though sharpness is of course nice.

But I don't throw this kind of money after a lens just to get metal construction or "feeling"
