Wide and ultra-wide angle prime (fixed focal length)

This a comment for this page on the website
Hi DxO
In the above article on lenses for Canon 5D MkIII, the comparison table shows the Canon EF 24mm f1.4L II USM as tying 3rd place score-wise with Carl Zeis Distagon T35MM f2 ZE for Canon, yet the note under the comparison table says,"The two top rated wide-angle lenses are moderate wide-angles, followed by Canon's highly rated EF 24mm f1.4 II USM".
Is this a purposeful promotion of Canon over the Carl Zeis lens? Could you be bending to corporate pressure from Canon? I was hoping your editorial comments were completely independent.

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

It is a very relevant comment. We actually choose to highlight the Canon lens because the two first lenses were already 35mm.

This Zeiss lens is of course a very interesting one too.

Best regards,
