Well I received this lens from Amazon yesterday and after some pretty extensive testing I've determined that it's going back. I don't know if it's the particular copy I received or the lens in general but it's incredibly soft anywhere below f/4 and only semi-sharp until f/8. I've asked for a replacement lens and I'll give it the same run-through. If the next one doesn't perform significantly better I guess this won't be a lens for me.
