OK, back with some more comparison shots.

I have returned the lens for a refund but I need to purchase one as I have now completely sold off all my canon gear which included the 17-55 f2.8 lens so I need this lens to replace it.

Before I returned it I had done the following shots (see flickr link).  Can some others with the lens perhaps do similar shots and let me know the sharpness you are getting from it.

Lens performed like this from 12mm to say 23mm.  Have done a number of shots with this same focus position with the same results.

I just want to be sure that other lenses perform properly at these focal lengths with this type of shot.  So very greatly appreciated if you can help.

IS is off on the lens, small focus square is on the persons face.

Have included comparison screen shot from LR4, original shots and 100% crops of two images.

Thanks
