two suggestions for your friend:

1. Wait at least a month

2. Order ONLY from the highest-volume seller in the UK - regardless of price

I'm convinced there was a bad first batch of lenses. Going back to the same dealer if he's a low-volume dealer doesn't help

Yep you're right here.

my first copy was bought the first week of release in Japan, and imported. It was a total dog - decentred on the whole right side of the frame.

my second copy was from the 'delayed' European batch, purchased through UKdigital, and its stella.

I won't be imoorting the 70-200 from Japan, I'll happily pay 20% more and get one from the UK a month later...
