A few problems there:

1) Ken Rockwells tests have a few issues that render them a bit less useful than you'd think..

a) He isn't taking into account field curvature differences that will often weight one test scene more than the other

b) He was using a 12mp D3 to do the tests. As one who has conducted quite a few vastly more detailed and throrough lens tests than Ken over the years, the issues between lenses are quite a bit more obvious with 24mp and 36mp bodies.

I haven't seen an old AIS lens in the wide angles - any of them - that is really great in the corners on modern high rez bodies. D700/D3 vintage - sure, D610/D800e level of bodies - nope.
