24-105L 1:1 sharpness samples, good or bad? (1Ds2)
May 16, 2012

I got this lens 2 weeks ago, still getting used to it's characteristics on Full frame.
I've uploaded two images shot with 24-105L on 1Ds2

105mm, f8

105mm, f5.6

Are the sharpness expected? Should it be better?

As far as I can see, the sharpness in the per-pixel level is obviously inferior to my other lens: 50 1.4 and 70-200 II IS. For the first image there is no feeling of 'Pop' in the in-focus area, compared to other 2 lenses. Wide open at f4 there is pronounced sharpness drop and haloing around details. That's why I am seeking for long term 24-105L owners for advices.
