A concern with the 17-40 on crop is that you will generally not want
to shoot it at smaller apertures than f/8 in order to avoid
diffraction blur issues. This is especially the case with typical
landscape work. However, this lens has some corner softness issues at
the larger apertures. When I shot mine on a crop body, while it
produced excellent center sharpness I often found that the far
corners of the frame were not as sharp as I wanted.

Really? Doesn't this mean it would be even more soft on FF?? .... A lot of people say, it is quite a sharp lens on FF... confused
