24-120 f/4 on a D7000...

... is not actually very good, which surprises me.

Sharp at the edges and pretty soggy in the middle - blurred, even.

Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 pin-sharp in the middle, horribly soft in the corners.

Yet on the D300s and the D700 the 24-120 works fine. Hmm. The D7000 has been back to Nikon twice for back-focus and is now fixed but I can't get a decent central image with that 24-120. OTOH, the 50mm 1.8G and 35mm 2.0 are fine.

I wonder how others find the 24-120 f/4 on the D7000 compared to a good DX lens.
