Hi Ian,

Have a look at the Tamron SP AF17-50 f2.8 Di II. The Photozone.de review makes a special mention of corner sharpness. For samples check out the Flikr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/tamron17-50mm/

I don't own the lens myself but am considering it, and apparently we'd want the non VC version if any.

Beauty and folly are old companions.

Interestingly I bought that lens with the camera a few weeks ago. It is currently sent back for service because the edges were awful and the whole image soft by f8. Being pessimistic I’m not confident that the returned lens will live up to expectations which is why I’m researching an alternative.
