Paul with respect these are taken with different apertures plus a huge difference in shutter speed also the sun is at a totally different angle which can make a big difference . Thanks for taking the time to do this and post it but your comparing apples with pears.

Need to defend Paul on this one. Sure we are comparing apples with pears, but it's quite easy to see how soft the 17-55 is at the corners at maximum aperture, regardless of shutter speed, angle and lighting. So it's not so hard to see the pear has spots that are rotten and from the perspective of freshness the apple wins for sure.

Sorry about the analogy.
