So finally I ask – do you score/rate

evaluate, I don't score.

this lens based on the projected area of the lens or what both the lens designer and “you” the photographer actually exactly intended/composed for in the viewfinder or on liveview?

I prefer to evaluate a lens with distortion correction enabled if it would result in excessively visible distortion. In the case of lenses like the 24-70, I prefer it corrected. In the case of lenses like the 35 and 50, the correction is small so I won't mind either way.

On the other hand I prefer to disable the rest of the automatic corrections (vignetting, lateral CA) to evaluate a lens - but not necessarily when using it.
