12-60 left side distant smearing
Mar 27, 2014

For the past couple years in some landscape shots I've notice that distant detail on the left side of the shot is fairly soft. I'm talking about the last two to three inches on the left when viewed at 100%. The right side is sharp all the way. Up close foreground, the left side is sharp.

It only bothers me on certain shots, and now that I recognize it, it bothers me more. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it with a repair? Trying to figure out if it's worth sending it in, or if I'd get back a "within spec" note.

I used to think it was the m43 adapter but I noticed it in some E5 shots too, just not as obvious.
