QC variances are an acknowledged problem with their cheaper lenses, but at this price?

It is surprising how many Sony lens gets with QA problem especially in E mount.  Even Sigma lens on their site have better representative samples which from what I read from other forums should not be the case.  I only have a couple of Sony lenses, but have not notice the QA problem that they found.

It is perhaps relevant to note that PZ buy their lenses for testing whereas most sites have lenses & kit provided by the manufacturers for evaluation.

This practice gives the suppliers the option of pre-testing & selecting out the faulty lenses but I'm sure none would be so unethical ........

That's a strong point in their favor. But they should switch their tests from the NEX-7 to the NEX-6.
