At least on paper, this lens is sharper than canon 70-200 F4L IS

SONY FE 70-200G OSS F4 vs CANON 70-200 F4L IS

At 70mm, sony is shaper all round,

At 200mm full open, sony is sharper, only the extreme corner is less sharper

So that settles it, right? Sharpness. No concern for CAs, distortion or anything else? (Actually, this lens probably beats the Canon in other performan too.)
