I doubt you'll see much difference between the two combos, particularly at low ISOs. Wouldn't be surprised if the 15-85 was better in the corners on the wide end.

agree, from the images I have seen the 15-85 definitely has better corners at 24mm equiv.

And why trust a rating that uses just a few numbers for performance of a (zoom) lens? It's a joke when performance varies with focal length, aperture, focus distance etc. and within the frame ... And people have different priorities when it comes to image quality. The DXO number can be nothing more than a very rough approximation of the image quality of the lens.

agree... to some degree

on wide end 15-85 beats the L...agree - and that is where I use my 15-85

the 9 Mpix reduction for the 24-105 on 5d2 is bothersome though for an L

hi mpxl crushes these normal range F4 zooms,

except the new $2200 24-70 f2.8 II

If your buying into sigma 35 f1.4 and 70-200 F2.8 II, then high mpxl is helping.

$3K for these lenses, then you are ready for FF

don't fall for the FF kit combo trap - unless you intend to sell the glass and get glass that takes advantage of high mpxls
