That's a little harsh, but +1 for mikesrc.
Just purchased 24-85 for my D800. Am I supposed to test grids/feel bad?
The only "idots" here are the people who have so little imagination that they can't fathom any reason why you might want to objectively test a lens.
Should you shoot in the real world to see if you like it? Sure. Is the benchmark the only measure of a lens? No. Might you still like a lens that benchmarks poorly? Of course.
But to utterly dismiss everyone who wants to test their gear as being stupid or irrelevant is incredibly arrogant. Nobody is telling you that you're stupid for not testing it, so why should you tell anyone that they're stupid for doing so?
+1 Some people see the world as black/white and do not have any ability to place themselves outside of their own world.
