Dear DPR, FYI, this image is slightly over-sharpened as viewed from my monitor.

I think a good idea for landscape samples is to include f11 and f16 versions. Yes, f8 & f9 presents the best center and overall IQ but even in this 16:9 cropped image, corners are already softening and would be significant on a full 3:2 aspect image. Is this the result of user defined DoF or lens aberration? I know this review is about the A99, but I wouldn't be interested in the camera without the CZ 24-70 and it's corner/edge performance in this series is inconclusive. Sure, I can extrapolate from the presented evidence but why not make it conclusive?
