"A great Way to Compromise Your Images"

Hmmm I think all lenses are compromises, all photos are compromises, and that we all pick our own compromises all the time. 
Clearly the 20-35 is going to deliver a more compromised optical performance in extremis than newer, bigger, more expensive lenses. But you could also say the 17-40 was "a great way to compromise your images" as it isn't going to be as good as a 16-35, or that that in turn isn't going to be as good as a prime etc etc
I didn't expect strong corner performance from a 1990s wide zoom but in general I'm finding the lens a little bit better than I expected.
