New 24-105mm details.. itís not going to be a sharp as the GM 24-70 or a CY 35-70 @f8, but no surprises there.

Not good enough for a landscape lens for me, but could be a nice travel/family lens for some people.


Thanks for posting these MTFs, but I don't think they help us much as they are theoretical MTFs and they are quite high at f/8. They show what looks like corner weaknesses at 24mm, but at f/4 and not really at f/8. At 105 the corners look better at f/4, but not quite as good at f/8. The bottom line is that these MTFs, which I would take with a huge grain of salt, look very good to excellent when stopped down to f/8 and they show some corner weakness at f/4 which is worse at 24mm than 105. I certainly would not rule it out as a landscape lens from these MTFs, in fact I think they look better stopped down than the 24-70 GM, but again it is very hard to tell anything from such MTFs.
