Decentering issues in two copies, third isn't as sharp as previous

  • Summary: Maybe I just have bad luck w/ lenses :-P The first two copies had decentering issues (left or right half of frame was fuzzy) but only at specific focal lengths and ranges...it took a few vacations and lots of shooting to see these issues.

quality issues

  • Summary: I returned the first lens because it was back-focusing with my Pentax K100D. The second lens was ok, but strangely, softer than the first one in tests with a focusing chart (albeit no backfocusing). Both lenses appear softer than the Pentax kit 18-55mm, which is disappointing.
