I wonder if f/6.3 was chosen to maximize DOF. You would think that diffraction would start to be an issue at that aperture, but the architectural details are very sharp.

I'm not impressed. The type of detail in the image strongly influences the apparent resolution; difficult to say what the actual quality is except that it isn't bad.

I would prefer to judge corner quality on a more natural scene, and compared to a few competing cameras (e.g. APS-C DSLR with the 15-85, plus one of the upcoming 24-120 large sensor competitors). Haven't seen any WA images near wide open either (where one can judge corner sharpness) so we don't know what value that bright lens is in reality.
