I gave a quick review last year on my (at the time) new to me 17-35 2.8 and posted a few sample pics. I was not totally please with it sharpness wide open. I thought I just didn't have a sharp copy. Well I finally spent some time messing with the af fine tune on the d700 yesterday and dam... I feel like I did the lens wrong with my original review. Lens is pretty dam sharp wide open. I ended up with a fine tune setting of -9. Anyway here are the pics. Some are sharpened in post, most aren't. Exif should be in tact. All are at 2.8 with a 100% crop after each pic.
