If you check out this comparison, you'll see the center of the lens sharpness is very very close between the zoom and the prime, but look at sharpness at mid-frame and corners and its no contest.

The results are logically what you'd expect between a good zoom and an excellent prime: [PS: I own neither]

Wow. That looks like a pretty substantial difference to me.
