Some shots with my 17-55. It can't get sharper than that
55mm, ISO 100, f/5.6 50% cropped and then resized from ~1800x1200 to 900x600.

I got it used for 450$. I'd never spend 1000$ for that lens.
Anyone else found that F2.8 pictures are way too soft almost unusable, pump it up to 3.2 and this is BEAST with it so sharp.. and then from 3.5 to 7.1 a bit jumping up and down and then again at F8 it amazingly sharp.Anyone noticed this, or is it just for me?
