I trust lloyd's reviews.... I bought my 28mm before reading this and other worrying threads. I do not test my lenses unless I consistently get disappointing results, and must confess that on the crop from my outings I had not noticed anything wrong. Importing as a type yesterday's pics, and will now spend some pixel peeping time, which I normally avoid.. Never had a dud prime lens in my life and would be so disappointed to be confronted to that now. Consumer rules in my country doe not allow returning goods unless I can prove a very clear manufacturing or design fault. A cumbersome process....

His findings here are equal to the cameralabs - sorry to say, I think we have huge focus shift with this lens - the other perhaps was not thorough enough in their testing ?
