But then I hear that even some 50mm may be "suspect."

This is by people that actually had their hands on it. But then there seems to be back-peddling going on: "my adapter was loose", "I may have a decentered lens", "I see sharpness on one edge but not on the other", "I should try another copy".

Typically this indicates that the person taking the shot missed focus, had a misaligned focal plane, is not an experience MF/RF shooter, and so on. The apologies per above came up in threads were responded questioned the OP (but are hard to follow in Chinese, Korean and Japanese).

Who knows if these preproduction units are  what we can expect to get with the production units Re. quality.
