every lens is great. Each have a bias
If i said or did say when you have a list like test in person is the best way.

I can't test in person. I live in a town in the Himalayas, and the nearest possibility is a city that takes a 15 hour taxi ride to get there. So I have to rely on the results others get that approximate the landscape features I am interested in photographing. Of course, there are so many factors that enter into my assessments that they are not rigorous by any means. Color saturation, "pop", sharpness, all have a certain variability among different lenses, not to mention the skills of the photographer involved.
