Hadn't heard of DXOMark before. Can someone please explain how come 35mm f/2 is considered to be the third sharpest lense from Canon, beating not only the 50mm 1.4, but also almost all the L lenses. I am trying to get a lens for my 6D and I thought I had it figured out by getting the 50mm 1.4, but now I'm not that sure:
For note:

DXOMark works well for sensor benchmarking/comparisons but their lens testing isn't as good. Their lens score depends entirely on the body that its attached to.

Attach the 5D Mark III/1DS/D800e and the score jumps to the top. Attach a very good lens to a smaller interchangeable system and the score drops. It's more megapixel and sensor dependent than it is on the actual lens.
