Which is a sharper lens when shoot wide open? The Sigma new 24-60mm f2.8 or the new 24-70 f2.8 EX DG Macro?

Have not tried both lenses. Usually the more exp 1 shd be better lah!! ahaha...
It is true that the exp 1 shd be better because of the glasses used. If you look at the lens brochure, it will show you how many say ED (for nikon only i think) or SD (i think for sigma) Aspherical glasses that they use.
