Let's not denigrate "subjective" all that much here. Seems to me that's a
very important part of judging whether you like a lens line or not.

And to assume test targets are "objective" seems dubious to me, because they
really don't give the "whole picture" of lens performance. Just because a
lens might not live up to other lenses on a particular "number" doesn't mean
overall it isn't the best choice.
