10-24 lacking sharpness when blown up to 16X20 print size

Has anyone done a real good comparison between the 10-24 and the 14? I have been using the 10-24 and have been pretty satisfied with it, printing mainly 10" prints and viewing on screen. However, yesterday I blew some images up to 20" prints and I was quite frankly rather disappointed in what I saw. It is just not all that sharp a lens. I've had it for a short time and can probably switch it out for the 14, but I figured I would come here to see if I could get some feedback. Please, do not respond if you have only viewed the 2 on a computer monitor. I have long contended that the only real good way to judge a lens is to make some large prints. Has anyone done so and compared it with the 14?
