    Hi Ken, I have both lenses and although I ve not done a critical test I would say there is no difference in sharpness at f/5.6. The 2.8 has slightly sharper

      Hi Ken,

      I have both lenses and although I've not done a critical test I would say there is no difference in sharpness at f/5.6. The 2.8 has slightly sharper edges at f/3.5, and I have a feeling the 3.5 may control flare a bit better.
