I use a 1.4 for the DOF. If you want sharp corner to corner don't use a 1.4. Save your money and get any less expensive lens, ie. 16-35 f/4.

I already own the 16-35mm, but I have to believe it's sharper from corner-to-corner, especially when stopped down.

Cute dog!

Exactly. I don't need the versatility or added heft of a zoom. I prefer primes due to their sharpness, speed and the fact that I really have to move my feet to frame a subject properly.
