1) It's one sample.

2) Look at the light - flat, winter. Not going to have much "pop" with light that flat.

Bad idea to use that one pic as "proof" of what the lens can or can't do...

Note: I don't own the lens - I have no use for a mid range zoom although I still have my old 24-70 around, as I prefer the better image quality from the very best or primes, but I have shot/evaluated the 24-70E VR, and think if I were a landscape shooter wanting a zoom in that range, with the compromises that come with a zoom of course, it would be that one over all other choices.

they are cut outs
