Could anyone show some corner sharpness crops at f/4 and 70mm? Some reviews say this lens is soft there, and one person (and his friend) posting in this thread also complained about this... I'm curious.
I don't often shoot at 70mm and when I do, it tends to be narrower apertures. However, for most subjects, the corners would be out of focus at f/4@70mm, so softness even if you find a suitable subject to test, would be irrelevant in the real world, as you'd want them soft anyway, with a few exceptions. I do find the corners soft at 24mm@f/11-f/16 though, which is one reason I was looking at the 24mm MkII, Zeiss 21mm and the TSE 24MM MkII for landscapes. The 24mm MkII won the contest, because I wanted f/1.4 for the northern lights. I'll see what I can find. I found one shot at 80mm, but the corners were out of focus.

This is the closest I could find, 82mm@f/4. Generally, I find that the more you zoom in, the sharper it gets and at 24mm until around 30mm, the 17-40 is sharper.

In the studio setting, where you have control over the background and sufficient lighting to stop down, the 24-105mm f/4L IS makes a flexible and excellent portrait lens...

Nice!  I never thought of this lens as a portrait lens, but I guess I was wrong!

I truly love this lens. It's sharp, focuses fast, nice bokeh, it's not too heavy and I would highly recommend it for fashion photography.

The images seem to be a little too wide for this forum..
