Thanks for posting your test. Someone else on this forum has been wanting to see a test like yours before deciding, and was wishing in a post that the reviewer at the-digital-picture.com had done this. I suggest that you should post your full test including conditions on this forum. Many people will be interested. If you have already done this, sorry, I must have missed it.

If you get a chance, please post your test procedure in a bit of detail. There seems to be a difference in white balance as well as perhaps a slight difference in exposure between the shots with the two lenses.

Also, considering that you are comparing the longest end of the 17-55 with the middle of the 24-105's range, the 17-55's sharpness seems surprisingly greater. Is your 24-105 a 'good copy'?

Is the 17-55 at f/2.8 shot accurately focused? I would have hoped for top performance wide open at this end given how many people will want this lens to work well for portraits.

Anyway, many thanks for posting. Any more info you can give would be much appreciated.
