Should my DX 18-200 ED VR II be this soft?
Oct 20, 2012

Hey all, I'm trying to decide whether I should send in this lens for repair/replacement or not. The attached shot is at 18mm/f3.5, obviously not expecting it to be razor sharp, but I've been surprised at just how soft the edges are getting.. For folks with this lens, is this normal? It only seems to get acceptably sharp across the image at around f7.1.

Thanks for any input!
