The ONLY zoom lens that I have used/owned that was sharp to the corners at all apertures with minimal distortion was the fantastic Olympus 12-40 f2.8. You have to see it to believe it. No other zoom comes close.

Aye. But it's also MFT? Right? And with corrections turned off in camera, it appears distortion may be worse with that lens. On quick google anyway.

I'm no engineer, but I would venture to guess that it's probably easier to make a sharp lens for a smaller sensor? And it's $1000 still.

I can respect your opinion. And the experience you have had. Perhaps the 12-40 is exceptional. But as far as full frame lens engineering goes, 24-70 FE for 1200 seems to be par. And it's my opinion it will give you more pleasing images than the 12-40mm on the whole, because it's taking advantage of the best full frame sensors on the market. I wouldn't buy a MFT camera. Probably wouldn't use one if it were given to me...even with the 12-40. That's just me of course.

I love my 24-105L. And I can't wait to do a direct comparison later in the month.

Each to their own I have my 24-105L mounted on SB on NEX 5r and the corner performance is actually quite impressive. Just love having the additional stop of light to play with when using it with a focus reducer.

I also own the 12-40 Oly pro lens for my E-M1, and find that quite amazing as well. The AF speed is nothing short of amazing. The bokeh may fall short of the 24-105L, but the overall size and weight of the 12-40 makes this lens far more portable than the 24-105L
