IMHO, the most important thing is how well a lense fits to
one's photography. (Hence design philosophy has importance.)

For example, dpreview picked up FE28/2 as 28mm prime recommendation for Sony fullsize E,
(https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/buying-guide-best-lenses-for-sony-mirrorless/3)
but as far as I experienced, it has relatively huge LoCA so it adds non-existent color everywhere near the subject.

Cropped from my FE28/2 pic. Two dummy belts show apprently different color.

On the other hand, as most happy users know, XF18/2 enough neatly corrects LoCA and render cleanly center subject, even though it gets color fringe on the contrasty corner.

So at least for environmental portrait, I can say XF18/2 is better
than FE28/2, about which dpreviews says 'optically excellent balance'.

I wish comming compact Z28mm will be such reasonable one too, rather than FE28/2 type.

Call me crazy but I feel dpr is biased toward sony. The 35 f1.8 from sony has obvious purple fringing at f1.8 while the Z 35 f1.8 is super clean in that matter but they didn't want to see it, they kept defending the sony lens while the nikon one is superior in many ways
