Re: Love 85 on DX !

My 24-120 f/4 is pretty sharp on DX. At 35mm f/4, it is as sharp as AF-s 35mm f/1.8 @ f/4 across the frame.

I compared my 24-120 f/4 with the old 28-70 f3.5-4.5, which is considered a good lens. The former one is much sharper when wide open for all zoom range.

I have to admit the 24-120 is an intriguing alternative to the 16-85 ... how is sharpness across the frame ? reviews I've seen show good center sharpness, but maybe not so great elsewhere ?)
