Re: Nikon site good because of MTF

I think you mean the OP's questioned AF-S 17-35mm f/2.8D lens here.

Sorry - yes I meant the 17-35.

I am not confident that it will improve really much

Canon publish MTF both wide open and at f8. Where a Canon lens is weak in the corners wide open the Canon MTF shows a significant improvement by f8.

I see no good reason why a Nikon with poor corners wide open should not generally similarly significantly improve by f8.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
