Re: Just received my 16-35 VR, want to check sample variation

I very much doubt that this lens is any more subject to sample variation than any other complex VR zoom.  The lens is often criticized by f/2.8 enthusiasts and those who feel VR is not needed on wide angle lenses.  The edges are indeed weak at 35mm.  For the corners f/8 helps over much of the focal length range, and some people don't like to have to stop down.

A few brick wall or infinity pictures will tell you if you have any serious centering problem.  Probably you won't find anything fatal:  then enjoy.  It is a versatile and very functional lens.
