Yes, I think that's right: the corners of the new one are slightly soft at full aperture. It looks uniformly amazingly sharp to me from around 2/3 stop down across the frame, though, especially for so wide a lens.

Too much Oly gear.
Panasonic GM5, 12-32, 12-35, 15. Laowa 7.5.
Assorted legacy lenses, plus a Fuji X70 & a Sony A7S.
