wide angle zoom lenses on 6D

Is it correct that the older 28-70mmf 2.8 L Canon lens is sharper than the first version of the 24-70mm f2.8 L lens when used on the 6D? Is this at all settings?  When the initial 24-70mm lens was released, testing indicated that is was sharper than the older 28-70mm.

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

It is right and not …. Sometimes lens measurements are diffcult to summarize:
The sharpness score is slightly higher on the 28-70 but if you check the field map at the wider aperture you will noticed that the older lens is less homogenous.
Check the comparison here:
