My copy might have been atypical, but it was very sharp at 35mm, especially in the center - it was almost as good as my 35L at equal apertures.

Here is a shot @5.6 at 26mm, that I made as one of the shots for my comparison test with 17-40 and 35L. It is nice and sharp in the center, but the corners are not great. They are not in the same focus plane, but there is something unusual about the look of the blurred areas. If I remember correctly the performance at 35mm was similar. I eventually sold it and got Zeiss 21mm.
