I have the 12-35 and 35-100 and I'd say the 35-100 is the star of the show. While it's not at its best at f2.8 (not that it's bad there) at f4-f5.6 it's really excellent. I've found the 12-35 to be more in the "okay" territory for me. (I actually took mine back to the shop and compared it to another as I was expecting more. As they behaved identically I concluded mine was at least a typical example, as properly "problem" lenses should be no more than 1 in 30 or so, hence finding two would be very unlikely.)
