This a comment for this page on the website
DxOMark scores these lenses in 5 categories.  When comparing Sony 500mm/4 to Nikon 500mm/4, using both companys' flagship bodies, a99 vs. D800, Sony has better scores in all 5 categories. Yet, Nikon gets a 25 score overall and Sony only rates a 22?  What is going on that is not being shown here? 

Readers should also compare the scores on the Canon 500/4, which seems to also come out short in the overall comparison after winning in 4 out of 5 categories, with a tie in the 5th.

Not sure that I want to continue to use DxOMark as an "unbiased" resource any more.

Thanks for your comment.

You can check our Sony 500mm review : Sony 500mm f/4 G SSM review: The longest super telephoto prime lens ever tested by DxOMark
This lens is pretty good but sharpness is a bit low compared with 300mm (which was the only lenses we had when we publish this review)
If you compare it to the Nikon 500mm:

The main difference is the Camera and that create the difference on the dxomark score.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
