Greg and Barry, I've still got my 17-35 G but to be fair hardly use it - I tend to use the 12-24 Sigma for UWA and let the CZ24-70 take care of the rest. It is/was marginally better than the 17-35 Tamron design on the A700, but I got rid of it before I got the A900 so cannot comment on the full frame comparison. The G is not sharp corner to corner even by f8 on the A900!
