I must have gotten lucky as my 17-70 is as good as it gets all the way around.

I must have been lucky as well. My copy is sharp even at 70 at f5.6 The corners on mine are soft at 17mm wide at f4 , but are sharp at 5.6. I actually rented a 15mm limited and took shots of my house from 60 feet away. The 17-70 was much sharper in the corners at f4 than the da15. I had to get the 15 up to f8 to get the corners to catch up to 17mm at 5.6.
