Maybe a sample image helps?

I also have both the 24-85VR and the 35 f/2, and I do find the 35 generally sharper in center frame, though I haven't done careful testing with charts. But that lens just doesn't make it for me as a general-purpose travel walkabout lens, since in these situations I'm usually shooting quickly without a lot of time to look for exactly the right spot to frame the shot. Here's an example from the 24-85VR at 34mm and f/10, ISO 800 and 1/250 sec:

and here's a crop from the center:

and one from the lower right corner:

Not too shabby, IMHO.
