Depending on what the used market is like, I'd consider waiting to see if you can pick up a used 2.8 E lens, i just picked one up here in Oz for 2k AUD inclusive of posting etc. so that's about 1350-1400 USD.

The E is a little out of my budget. If the G2 has poor field curvature as well I would be more willing to consider it.

I heard the G2 is sharper in the corners, it is 3rd party but it's much cheaper. I think I can get one for under $900 USD used. Tap in console might be helpful for more specific af fine tuning, haven't done much research on that tool but it sounds neat.
