Re: is this nikon 24-70mm decentered/defective/just bad?

Sorry if this was already said, but I didn't read the whole thread.

That is just misfocus due to field curvature. At short distances the edges will never be as sharp as the center.

Another thing, you can always fine tune the lens in camera, because the center area could be sharper.
