The 28-105 was/is a great lens but wide open it has a lot of CA and is not as sharp as the new 24-120 wide open. I often considered the 28-105 a straight f/5.6.

I don't disagree, but the 24-120 has equally bad CA in my experience, plus massive vignetting. On a $300 lens, I'd just shrug it off, but at 4x the price, I had higher expectations.
