I've also gone through 3 copies of this lens and the third one ( although best of the bunch ) is far from ideal. But as I got it for £102 I shouldn't really complain. It is ok for most situations but where it's showing it's weakness ( smeared corners - usually one, left or right depending on the copy ) is where you try to take a parallel shot with straight lines like in the OP's last example - the bottom right hand corner with the plants is clearly smeared, more then the left hand side. And you don't have to pixel peep to notice the difference.
