Our Lens Rating Scale
We use a ten-point scale to rate the lenses that we review, in which the top score is a 10. The overall score of a lens is determined by the taking the average of the following sub-scores:
Criteria considered include center sharpness, corner sharpness, sharpness wide-open, and resolution.
Criteria considered include color reproduction, severity of vignetting, severity of aberrations, distortions, presence of flares, and presence of special coatings/glass elements.
Criteria considered include nature of bokeh and number of aperture blades.
Criteria considered include autofocus speed, noise, and presence of DC/SDM technology. This sub-score is left out for manual-focus lenses.
Criteria considered include build quality, throw, smoothness of zoom/focusing rings, presence of iternal focusing/zooming, presence of weather sealing, size, weight, and shape.
Criteria considered include versatility, price, features, resale value, appeal, and overall quality.
