A big mistake : not tested with the same sensor and same resolution ...

So figures are just not comparable

At the moment I only trust the Lensrentals reviews because two mean reasons:

1. There measurements are not dependent on any sensor or camera

2. They typically test at least 10 samples of the same lens (which is important because sample variation can be quite significant)

Unfortunately they have not test much Fuji gear, mainly because Fujifilm is not so popular by professionals who rent gear from them.

Other reviews may interesting to read and give some indication about performance but probably can't be used to compare results as is done too often. At least it's not wise to make a purchase decision based on such a review alone.
