Help with my NEX-5 and brand new Zeiss 24mm f1.8
Jun 24, 2012

Just got my Zeiss for a very good price (about $750). I read that zeiss 24 f1.8 has a poor quality control. Lensrental resolution test show that a couple of zeiss got a very low result compared to another zeiss at its widest aperture (740 vs 475 at f1.8). I want to ask the veteran with more experience here to help me by giving feedback on my zeiss. Is my zeiss a good copy or not? It is still very new so I can ask Sony to fix it under warranty.

Another thing, I droped my zeiss from about 1 metre before opening it. It was still in it's box when I drop it. But, since this is a very expensive lens, I got paranoid and can't stop thinking about it. Is my lens decentered? Is there any problem with my lens? Here is my sample picture taken at f1.8, standard creative style, jpeg fine. I uploaded the picture to the gallery at full resolution. Please give me feedback. Thanks before.
