What do you think of center and mid-frame 24mm and 35mm sharpness compared to the 24-70 II? I didn't scientifically compare yet, but from just snapping around I'm suspicious that the 24-70 II is better and the center microcontrast might be closer to 24-105 L than 24-70 II (even if the CA of all types, distortion and edges and corners are much better than 24-105L and more like 24-70 II).

I hope not, because my (recently departed) 16-35 F2.8LII I had excelled there.

I sometimes wonder if when manufacturers optimize the corners the center might be shortchanged.

Hope not, since I have one on order!
