Poor optical quality

Summary: My copy has poor corner sharpness at 24 mm, even at f/11. I have returned it to Nikon for repair. I currently have a loan lens, which is slightly better, but I still don't see the fantastic corner to corner sharpness that some people claim. There is clearly an issue with this lens, as reports on sharpness and focus accuracy varies widely. It's probably a tolerance issue and I am sure Nikon is working to solve these problems.
Summary: Very heavy, makes carrying your camera around less and less desirable with every day that passes. I had people commenting on the fact that they felt intimidated by the size of the lens. Picture quality is great, but (at least my copy) does not feel as “stellar” as other reviews made me to expect.
