Re: FE 24-70 f/4: Holding me back from going to A7x

I own the 24-70 - while it does have its flaws, describing it as 'poor' is overstating it IMHO.  I would describe it as decent, but not outstanding.

it is not sharp in the corners at 24mm at any fstop, that is probably its biggest weakness.  It would not be my first choice as a landscape lens for this reason, but I'm sure you could get wonderful results none the less.

really the only other area mine is lacking is wide open at 70mm.  Stopped down to 5.6 brings the sharpness right back again.

i am keeping mine
