The DXO lens scores make some comparison possible, but for instance sharpness is only one number covering all apertures - that is not very informative...
An 1.4 lens is made to be used wide open and central sharpness is more important while a TS lens is made to be used at d8-11 and has to be sharp from corner to corner..

I agree. What point is there in comparing all the lenses at their widest aperture? The information is virtually useless.

About as relevant as comparing camera sensors at their lowest ISO?

Hi,

It depends on how you shoot, both cases.

Best regards
Erik

What i do not understand in the lenstests made by DXOmark is why they do not give the measurements of the lens independent of the camera...
It would make the whole lenstest database better and more straightforward.
It would show directly that if i buy a lens it will be good enough for even better sensors in the future...
Using my Nikon V1 with FF Nikkors i can already see what is possible with a 75mpix camera.. at least in the center...
i would suggest something like on this image..
In this way you can see what your lens will do on any camera...
any suggestions?
