First of all thanks for all the work. Much appreciated.
For me, for landscape, the real comparison is the 24-105 f4 is vs 24-70 2.8 v2.
There is no doubt the 24-70 is a high iq lens. But I am yet to be convinced that it is a great landscape lens as compared to 24-105.
Based on thedigitalpicture at f8 the 24-70 is marginaly better at 24 but similar at 70mm and the 24-105 woops it at 105mm Your tests are hint at the same results.
But the 24-105 is lighter, has IS, and is considerably cheaper. The IS is a big deal when hiking and trying to get a good quick shot. The iighter is a big deal when you hike 20km - it permits carrying TS17. The $1000 is significant to my wife .
Unless I am missing something, I would prefer my 24-105f4 for landscape and prefer the 24-70 if I was shooting indoors. When I have time, at 24mm I use a prime (17TS, 25 Zeiss) and when I am in a hurry the IS and 105mm means more than corner sharpeness. And the weight savings is significant, because I prefer a prime and bring the zoom for walking and shooting.
I realize everyone has a different usage preference. And I am not saying I am right, just saying tell me what I am missing.
