I have to disagree with you sting. The charts clearly show the 24-70

A lot of those numbers are what I would call nearly comparable and many are identical. While others may be able to see a 5-10% difference in sharpness, I can't. I shot with the 24-70 and 17-55 at f/2.8 at a regular sports event (indoor martial arts), and I really can't tell the difference between the two lenses when compared both during sessions and when comparing sessions shot with each. The lenses are both that good.
