I will give links to controlled samples so you can judge for yourself.

Look at the VFA target and still life samples for the 12-35mm (unfortunately not available for the 12-35mm II):

This page has it for the 12-60mm kit:

This should give you a good idea of the center and corner sharpness.

Optical Limits also unfortunately only have the 12-35mm and not the II. However you can still get an idea.
