Re: Corner tests for 16-35 f/4 vs. 16-35 f/2.8 (v.1) vs. 24-70 f/2.8L II

O.K., perhaps I misspoke in my hurry to get the results posted. Jeez. Lets see. I'm surprised that the $1200 16-35 f/4L IS produces very similar corner results to the $2200 24-70 f/2.8L II. Better?

Not denigrating the 24-70 f/2.8L II; one of the sharpest and most flare-resistant lenses Canon has produced in years. Love mine--I was just surprised that the affordable new 16-35 could produce similar results at 24mm and 35mm.
