As we all know, this lens can suffer from a common issue of delamination in some of the lens group elements. I purchased my 28-70mm F2.8 L a couple months ago for only $190 shipped...but there is delamination in two of the lens elements. Here is what it looks like inside:

Pretty scary...I thought it produced soft images until I got my brain on right and realized that shooting at F/4 or F/2.8 isn't oging to give me SUPER sharp images like I thought :P. So here's my sample images.

@ F/3.5

Also, What is the sweet spot on this lens for you guys? I've been trying to find it recently, but it difficult to tell :(

I am going to resurrect this thread from the dead! this is such a underrated lens. its KILLER! I'm on my third copy. and every single one I had has been awesome. The wide open sharpness is ridiculous.
