15-85 + 70-200mm f/4.0L IS. Each are very sharp across its entire zoom range.

Could it possibly be that DxOMark is wrong???
I shoot wedding, portraits, street photography... etc. etc. The 70-200 is great and all, I just never use it... Should I sell it and get the 85mm 1.2 and then have the 35L, 85L & 24-70mm? I'm shooting a 5DMKii & 1vHS.
The whole point of FF is that it offers better quality but only when lenses resolve that detail.
Nothing interests me less than another average zoom lens that doesn't have a constant aperture..... If you're spending that much on a body, why compromise on a crappy lens?Why would the lack of constant aperture make a lens crappy? Are the 100-400 and 70-300L lenses crappy?
I'm sure every manufacturer would produce just one model of anything if they could be confident it would sell and if they had no competition.
The 400 F5.6 sells for $1350 in Canada. To get a longer Canon lens you have to be ready to shell out $9690. That's a HUGE jump in price.... and I'd be willing to bet that there is a market for something in between, like a 600 F5.6.
