    Default DxOMark lens ranking

    Interesting stuff...

    http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en/.../Lens-rankings

    Looks like the Nikon D3x - throw what lens at it also good.

    In terms of "use case", Canon and Sony lenses dominate.

    Comments?

    That's the important part: to read the fine print and to understand what exactly has been measured / compared / ranked. The outcome of the DxO mark is not to come to sales phrases like "cam x beats cam y" but rather to understand component specifics - and also to reveal where marketing is exaggerating.

    They're only comparing the sensors, not the whole camera

    can you afford D3x ? i am using nikon. sigh.

    the canon 5dmk2 + 85mm 1.8 only cost 3k plus, they rank very high in dxomark.

    my friend told me 85mm 1.8 not sharp, anyone can confirm ?

    i feel that the ranking is bias towards camera with more pixels.

    We can confirm that this statement is a) very generalizing and not helpful; and b) based on subjective experiences of your friend where we have c) no idea about the situation where he used the lens and the camera he used and d) whether it really is a lens error (front/back focusing - did he test it?) or just 'user error'. Personally, I tend to suspect 'd' when I read such lines.
    There are many reviews online. Read them, rent the lens, form your own opinion.
