This a comment for this page on the website
I like these specific roundups, very useful for owners of the cameras involved. But I'm a little confused by how the overall scores are tallied. The Canon 100mm F2 EF rates above the Zeiss 100mm F2 ZE by one point, but a closer look at the scores for individual areas shows the Zeiss to equal (transmission, vignetting) or better (sharpness, chromatic aberration, distortion) the Canon in all areas. How then does it rate as one point worse overall? Is it because it doesn't auto-focus on the 6D? How many points are awarded for AF.

Thanks for your comment and your support.

DxOMark score does not depend on the optical scores.
It depends on the measurement perfomed for Sharpness, Distorsion, TStop, and shading. Noise, dynamic range and Color depth are taken into account too.

See our documentation here :
