Roger, how did the 24-70 II compared to the 24 TS-E II in the corners? It's hard to think that the zoom would have higher resolution.
Fred, it was the 24-70 II was sharper in the center and central 1/2, about dead even outside of that.
With Imatest we're measuring about 90% of the way to the corner, but not the absolute corner, though. I'm like everyone else, waiting for a good reviewer to shoot some infinity landscapes or such to tell about the absolute corners.
There is a respected FM'er (PhotoMadNZ) who evaluated the 24-70 L II for professional landscape work. He had access to multiple samples and found the lens has issues relating to field curvature. He shared an example raw file which demostrated this. The image showed slight degradation on the one extreme corner @ f/8. Hardly a huge issue, but it is there.
Also factoring in the distortion, I'd say the 24 TSE II still may be landscape king @ 24mm.
