Sigma 24-135mm service and quality stuff...

So it turns out that my lens has the blanking LCD problem. I knew this going into this purchase, and I'm willing to be away from my lens for a while. All I have to do is call Sigma and arrange to ship it there for a fix up, right?

Also...I'm really impressed with how sharp this thing is optically. I was prepared to cope with softness wide open, but this thing seems QUITE sharp wide open at both ends of the lens.

24mm f2.8

135mm f4.5

Is this what other people are calling soft? Do I have a good/great/exceptional copy of this lens?
