Here's my rant: Corners almost never matter all that much. Think about it. Nobody ever puts really compelling or interesting stuff in the corner of a photo. And....

The only way we would know if the corners were sharp or not is if someone photographed a test chart or a brick wall. Test charts and brick walls are two dimensional, but the world we live in is three dimensional. Chances are that whatever is in the corner of our pictures will be either too close or too far away from the camera to be in focus anyway. I get so aggravated reading posts whining about soft corners. Wisdom and knowledge are different.
