Re: EF 24-70 f/2.8L II USM - Really tack sharp?

Unless there's something wrong with it, the lens should be impressively sharp - sharp enough that unless you need faster than f/2.8 and are really picky, your primes in the 24-70 range can probably stay home. Some reviews say it's at its weakest at or near MFD; that seems to be true of my copy too but it's still very useable  up close.

FWIW I bought mine used - no way of knowing how many previous users - but it was in very fine condition and came in at close to half the price of a new copy. A real bargain that still puts a smile on my face whenever I use it.
