Yes very disheartening, both my 18-55 kit lenses were decentered, my DA*16-50 a little, however the 17-50 tamron was way off, as was the Sigma 50-150 2.8; Sigma  10-20 4/5.6,Sigma 18-50 EX 2.8 ( rubbishly), even my DA 21 3.2 was decentered( pentax sent me a new one).

Lenses I've bought that were not decentered; FA 50 1.4; S/H FA* 300 4.5; S/H 105 Macro 2.8, Samyang fisheye and a few S/H manual lenses and that's out of fifteen lenses.

In short 2/3 rds of the the lenses I've bought new or S/H were decentered and were returned.
