50mm is it's weakest point, but it's not like it's a disaster there and it's only a very small range right around 50mm where it's worse the rest of the range. Plus 50mm there are so many ways to get perfection on FF, even a $100 50mm 1.8. This pulls off 24mm well on FF, the holy grail for zooms on FF, and it's good at 70mm too (I'd say it actually has better edges on FF at 70mm than the 24-70 II, 70mm FF edges are where that lens is weakest).

anyway if the 24-70 f/4 IS a dud then the 24-105L is the mother, father, brother, sister of all duds raised to the power of 10 IMO
