Well, I actually don't know what happened. I treat my gear very gently, didn't bump or drop it. But all my images with that lens have been muddy and insipid for some time. And it's not just that this spring has been dry and colorless. Here's the same view this year, to compare to the previous one I posted:

Both images were taken at f/8, on a tripod, center focus, about 5 pm in early April. But when I pixel-peep at that Victorian house just left of center I see that the current image is much worse:

left: 2012 right: 2103

The far right hand side of both images is of equal sharpness. (I up-rezzed these 150 pixel crops 4x nearest neighbor to make the difference more obvious.)

Hello David,

it looks like some element inside the lens moved. Please keep us posted with the verdict of your Sigma service. Thanks again, best
