Not that scientific but its what I would see in my day to days shots!

I had read lots of conflicting reports about how this lens performs at 24mm so thought I would compare with the kit lens, I was apprehensive as I thought I may see little or no difference.

However I was pleasantly surprised

Not tack sharp by any means but certainly much better than my kit lens at the edges and anywhere away from the centre, at the centre at all focal ranges they are very similar when it come to sharpness.

It looks like you have a decent copy of 24-70z.. and a indecent copy of 28-70.
