Re: a thought about that 2.8 softness...

First off, I'm a big fan of slrgear.com and their charts. They have proven to be quite accurate (IMO) and have matched the performance that I observe with my lenses (including Nikon DX and FX lenses). The 12-35mm shows wonderful sharpness, with center sharpness only minimally less at 2.8 than 4.0. When you compare to one of the 14-x kit lenses at 3.5, I'd say that's a winner.

The SLR gear review is bang on and does match how my copy of this lens performs.

But looking at the Photography Blog sample images of the books, if you notice the black "Photograph" book -- that is pretty sharp even at 2.8. The other two books are blurry because they are out of focus. So I honestly wouldn't be too concerned. Those samples still have me sold on this lens and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
