View side by side 100% screen viewing? Why would you do that? I have the 12-35 and have no problems with edge sharpness or with the 35-100.

I do think that people cause themselves a lot of angst with this OCD sharpness thing and pixel peeping.

If I rev my diesel cat to 5000rpm, the engine is noisy. But I have no reason to rev it to 5000 so I don't. Ditto viewing at 100%. Just makes people unhappy to no practical purpose whatsoever.

Yes - why would I want to compare the relative performances of 2 lenses in the only way that excludes all other variables?

Glad you don't have any edge sharpness problems - but how do you know as I presume you have not tested them.

I have reason ( as many others do) to print images at a 1:1 ratio of the sensor pixels with the printers native resolution and thus viewing at 100% on a monitor ( 1:1 ratio of sensor and screen pixels) is actually both useful and relevant.
