Seems like theres one shot from each batch that shows a reason to you, with the exception of the 50mm which appears to be a consistent performer. It also appears to have the best contrast and color of the bunch as well. There is a tuft of fuzz on the left most teapot thingy thats visible from the Sears 50mm that doesn't really show up on the Quantaray pic of the same thing for example.
