I did some tests

I did some test son the 16-35 Mk1

At 16 mm:
It is very soft on the edges at f2.8
Totally acceptable across the frame at f 5.6
Sharp across the frame at f 11

At 24 mm and 35 mm it is the same but the lens gets sharper on the edges at 2.8 as you zoom in.

So I would say the only big shortcoming of this lens is at 16 mm at 2.8, but I guess it could be considered normal.
