Is It True That The 24-70 VR is Bad At Close Distances?

Re: Where does the greatness begin???

The original non-VR 24-70/2.8G AFS sacrificed edge performance (a bit), and most definitely corner/edge performance at 24mm, but was better (relatively) in the closer ranges, not quite as good in the distant ranges.

If I really needed a 24-70 (I don't, so the old one serves me fine as a backup role), I would get the new one - I think overall it's the better lens, with sensibly designed trade offs.
