Re: Have you checked AF accuracy?

I've never owned the 35 f2 but the others Id expect to perform perfectly acceptably on current FF cameras. They won't match the latest and greatest when pixel peeping but all should do OK.  The 70-200 f4 in particular is a very good lens IMO. The 17-40 is best stopped down a bit and the corners never get pin sharp but to get that in an ultrawide you need to spend about three times as much. The primes obviously wont be corner to corner sharp wide open but even the best fast L prime lenses struggle there.

You should be fine printing at A4 and acceptable with a little pp at A3+ for most purposes. IMO you buy FF for extra dof  and noise control it wont make your lenses sharp corner to corner.
