I have tried sharpenig, but then to get the image at a sharp enough quality, it has that 'oversharpened' look.
I also want to purchase another lens and was looking at the 24 - 105 F4 instead of the 24-70, and the 70-200, but this has put me right off Canon lenses.
Sorry you had trouble with this lens.
You shouldn't need to sharpen to get a pin sharp image. Just checked on WareHouse Express and one reviewer has said it isn't sharp but nine others say it is. This suggests there may be a few faulty ones around, and I think you were unlucky.
