The joke that I made up (because I'm so hilarious) is that for a lens to be a "normhead lens" it needs to be smaller, lighter, wasn't designed to be a perfectly corrected optic, and needs to have a bit of character.
Don't know if you have used a Distagon much but it is not small and light and, if not "perfectly corrected", it is darn close.
