Still Suffers from Poor Quality Control

Excerpt: This lens often suffers from quality control issues. Despite the metal construction and sense of solid quality, in actual reality the lens barrel and mount may have some play and little wobbly when the lens barrel is extended.
Excerpt: The copy of this lens is soft, tested on a solid tripod with the OS off against both the 18mm f2 and the 35mm f1.4 and it's not even close to the same performance. I did a quick decentering test and it clearly has some issues in that reguard.
Excerpt: My 1 month old 18-55 just came back from Fuji to fix an issue with zoom creep where the barrel would come out as soon as you'd shake the camera while moving. Turns out that the lens is now in an even worse condition in a sense that the barrel literally falls out as soon as you turn the camera...
