U mentioned the pro photographer who shoots arty shots which r never focused but always “off” a bit to make the difference distinguishable. And u mention the great degree of control mechanical focusing makes versus the fly by wire of FE lens u included in the comparison. Could u take some shots comparing the distinctions u r able to achieve? If u were trying to say the choice of lens is all about what one perceives as having some objective/subjective advantage I would like to see what the advantage is in practice. Especially when it comes to resolution it is less important if one detects virtually no difference. But clearly some of the shots are darker than others at the same aperture, and of course different poses will influence ones objectivity. BTW the article is very informative and well written.
