I guess your eyes are superior to mine (mine are 58 ), because I don't see it 'pop' more. If I look at the pistle/stamen of the yellow flowers the 70-200 seems to pop more at me in the crops. The magenta flowers appear to have better definition in the centers on the 100mm crop. But as I have stated numerous times, the focus points were not carefully controlled since this was not a focus or DOF test. With such variation between shots, I still cannot accept a valid conclusion about sharpness or pop can be concluded. It is wishful thinking perhaps.

#2 is definitely superior in those examples, especially in sharpness and bokeh. Take it from someone with perfect vision and no correction of any kind. Now, wether there were other factors in play that influenced this is always true.
