The center is certainly sharper than the corners wide open. The famous vignetting is not a problem at all AFAIC. The corners are all about the same sharpness. If I were splitting hairs, I might ding the left side a tiny bit, but it's nothing that will affect normal photography. Lr CC 2015.6, defaults except for Exposure boost, WB Daylight.

Thanks for the test Jim. I think the left side is definitely soft compared to the right. Hard to tell from the image though. I'd bet if you shot buildings or something with hard lines you find the left side stands out. Based on my experience though that's a decent copy with a "normal" slightly softer side.

Maybe so. maybe I'll do shoot some targets. But this is certainly not something that would affect any photograph that I'd choose that lens to make in any meaningful way. It's not trying to be an Otus 35 (if there were such a thing) or even a Sigma 35.
