I'd say the 12-35 is in slightly weaker territory as the edges aren't so hot, possibly due to software distortion correction but I don't care how they got that way, and there's lots of prime options.

This may be a stupid question, but if you basically love a lens like this, cant you shoot a bit wider and crop out the corner crappy parts ?. yes, its an extra step but if thats a deal breaker for buying it.. this might do ?
