    Problem is the edges and contrast. I'm a pretty demanding guy and I expect the edges to give decent performance, particularly when moderately stopped down. Compared to a good prime lens like the Sigma 35mm F/1.4, it's smeared and soft. The centre is good, but that's just the centre 1/3. The outer 2/3 is not up to use on a high resolution sensor. For a zoom to give good results it has to be very well designed.

    Not good enough, sorry

    Perhaps the 28-105mm may have been more to your liking. This report indicates good corner sharpness from 28mm to 70mm.
