Hear hear. Not so bad with the CA on the Nikon front, but I was  
surprised at just how much better the 35 cron ASPH is than anything  
Nikon has in that FL range. Even the new 24-70, which I thought was  
possibly the best zoom I've ever used - doesn't come close. My 35  
cron asph is sharper at f2 in the corners than the 24-70 ever gets,  
at any aperture.
